  • changing responses exiting burp

    A thick java application needs gzipped responses, so I'm trying to make an extension that re-gzips HTTP responses going from burp to the application. However I can't find the right callback to register. Both IHttpListener and IProxyListener hook before I can manually edit the response. I want the extension to act after editing (when I click the forward button).
