EOF (read returns -1) occurs when the entire body of the request has 
been read, and if additional read calls are made by Tomcat. For a 
disconnect, the result is an exception, not a -1. Additional bytes can 
still be present if the client is slightly broken (it could send some 
CRLFs) or if it uses pipelining.
