Using Apache Tomcat only as authentication filter to parse SAML attributes from the IdP

I would like to know if anyone has implemented Apache Tomcat to parse SAML response from the IdP to extract attributes and allow access to users.

It's a way to filter users using Apache Tomcat only, not using any programming language such as PHP, or java.

If the IdP responds with an affiliation attribute (eduPersonAffiliation="faculty"), can Apache Tomcat be able to act as  a PHP /Java program parser to redirect the user to a restricted page or not.

Thank you, I appreciate if this is possible.
