What do you mean by that? Do you just want to change the return value of
HttpServletRequest.getMethod? You can certainly do that easily.

Do you want to convert POST parameters to GET parameters? That is a bit
tougher, but is possible. I'm not sure why you'd want to do this, since
servlets do not really distinguish between GET and POST parameters --
the API abstracts that complexity away from your code.

Given that the Tomcat source code is available, you could always look in
there for inspiration!
