Subject 8-bit data munged in apache->jk->tomcat
Date Wed, 14 May 2003 22:16:00 GMT

We are receiving a binary stream from Adobe (it's a pdf) over an http 
connection (in the body of the POST, but not mime-encoded)

This worked great when tomcat (v4.1.18 fwiw) was set to respond directly 
to the requests, but now that apache dispatches to tomcat (v4.1.24) via 
jk, some/all 8-bit data is scrambled. For example, codes (octal) like 
\342 \343 \317 \323 get turned into ? (or at least that's how emacs 
shows it)

This is using apache 1.3.27, tomcat-4.1.24, tomcat-connectors-4.1.24, 
jdk 1.4.1_02, solaris 8, ajp13 (tried both 
org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector and 

Any ideas? Is there any way to make this work?
