Thank you for your solution. But I still feel weird for a brand new request being created for a called block (servlet), at least for a super block (servlet). Having a look at the source code, each new brand request and response are supposed to be stored in its call frame (actually, this feature is not implemented yet, but api for retrieving these two objects are provided). If such design is intended, why not just treat request and response as part of servlet (block) context. And a way for passing a request's attributes or parameters must be provided. My real opinion is that request should be pass through all servlets invoked, instead of creating a new one.

We had the same problem already with the previous block: protocol. Currently
the only way to send parameters to the other servlet via the URL. Thus I
have written a simple input module that converts your params into URL params:

- ParamsToURIModule: (Input Module)

a meta module that converts all attributes of another module into a correct
uri query string (&a=b;c=d)

To use it, simply write this (if the input module is registered under

<map:read src="servlet:super:/{0}?{params-as-uri:request-param}"/>

It is a meta input module, ie. it takes the name of another module and
converts all it's attributes into an URL query string. In this case it will
add all request parameters.
