Yes, you can write a filter [1] or use the RedirecterFrame [2].

Filters [1] are made for that, and the api is simple. Take a look at
the filters sample code page [3].

Humm, the servlet api is not adapted for that, because the servlet write
the reply directly on the socket. You should use a Jigsaw filter instead.
