T- the type of objects that this RequestCondition can be combined with and compared to
public interface RequestCondition<T>
Request conditions can be combined via
combine(Object), matched to
a request via
getMatchingCondition(HttpServletRequest), and compared
to each other via
compareTo(Object, HttpServletRequest) to determine
which is a closer match for a given request.

Compare this condition to another condition in the context of a specific request.

other- the condition to combine with.
T getMatchingCondition(HttpServletRequest request)
For CORS pre-flight requests, conditions should match to the would-be, actual request (e.g. URL pattern, query parameters, and the HTTP method from the "Access-Control-Request-Method" header). If a condition cannot be matched to a pre-flight request it should return an instance with empty content thus not causing a failure to match.
int compareTo(T other, HttpServletRequest request)
getMatchingCondition(HttpServletRequest)to ensure they have content relevant to current request only.
