Yes, it does support POST.  As to format, I believe that's handled by the container.  So if
you're url-encoding the parameter values, you'll probably need to set Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
for the HTTP POST header.

Anyone knows the answer to Shawn's question?  Does Solr support POST request and is the format
the same as GET?

If it does than it means I don't have to create multiple request handlers.
