Subject RE: GET request instead of POST
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2006 14:06:19 GMT

 I came to know from one of my collegue that sometimes Apache redirects
a POST request to GET. Does anybody some more information on what cases
the Apache does so. Please let me know

My first step would be to track down exactly where this GET request is
coming from. I would use TcpMon (from the Apache Axis project) to act as
a proxy in from of Apache to see exactly what your applet is sending. I
would also use Tomcat's RequestDumperValve to see what Apache is sending
to Tomcat. If you know the source of the GET, you are half way to fixing
