Tomcat gzip compression filter can be turned on with "compression=on" in server.xml:
<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               compression="on"
               redirectPort="8443" />

The default compressed MIME types are: text/html,text/xml,text/plain.

It would be nice to add other types:
<Connector
    port="8080"
    protocol="HTTP/1.1"
    connectionTimeout="20000"
    compression="on"
    compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/plain,application/xml,application/json,text/css,application/javascript"
/>
