request.getParameter() doesn't HTTP decode posted form data


a JSP page processes posted form data

the form data contains a parameter PARAM1="Foo1 Foo2",
beware the space between the words

Tomcat 3.2: request.getParameter("PARAM1") returns
"Foo1 Foo2"

Tomcat 4.0: request.getParameter("PARAM1") returns
"Foo1+Foo2", further checks with other form data
pointed to the fact that Tomcat 4.0 doesn't decode
posted form data
