Trying to find you a raw example of a plain POST...
This "looks" ok...

Then look further down and theres some guy messing with multiparts...
see ... its all depends...  I dont know how good TC's built in mutipart 
support is...

Anyway I think if you play with that raw post, you'll probably come right ;)
Have fun...

The later Java stuff also supports... chunked encoding and if its not your 
client, maybe its a custom job with the wrong headers...

Theres actually a handy tool called wire shark... I use that when I cant get 
it sorted from the code... you may see the reason for why they not getting 
each other...
Have fun....
