Subject reading POST body fails on 6.0.16, works on 6.0.14
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 15:26:22 GMT
Hello All,

I have a very simple doPost method that reads the body of a POST 
request.  Seems to work fine on 6.0.14 but consistently fails to read 
the body correctly in 6.0.16.  Can someone help me with what's wrong here?

Thanks!

  protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
         HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, 
IOException {

      // read POST body
      StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
      try {
         BufferedReader reader = request.getReader();
         String inputLine;
         while ((inputLine = reader.readLine()) != null) {
            sb.append(inputLine);
         }
      } catch (IOException e) {
         throw new IllegalStateException("Error reading request body");
      }
      String content = sb.toString();
      log.debug("read "+content.length()+" characters from POST body");
      if (content.length() != request.getContentLength()) {
         log.warn("Expected content length of 
"+request.getContentLength()+" but only read "+content.length()+" 
characters");
      }
     
      //write out read content to file
      PrintStream os = new PrintStream(new 
FileOutputStream("/tmp/post_body.txt"));
      os.println(content);
      os.close();

      PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
      response.setContentType("text/plain");
      out.println("Content Type: " + request.getContentType());
      out.println("POST body contained " + request.getContentLength() + 
" characters");
      out.println("read " + content.length() + " characters from POST 
body");
      out.flush();
      out.close();
   }
