Without more information (the entire stack trace, and the code snippet around
where you encounter this exception) it is really hard for anyone to help
diagnose what is going on.

One thing to note -- if you are processing a POST request, and you call one of
the request.getParameter() family of methods, the servlet container *does* call
request.getReader() for you, in order to process the request parameters.
