>Description:
In JServConnection.java there is no provision to differentiate depending
on Content-Type when handling a POST method. Everything is passed to
HttpUtils.parsePostData() that apparently does not handle multipart/form-data
but does not throw IllegalArgumentException.

This limitation brakes a servlet that works without problems using
Livesoftware's JRun servlet engine.
>How-To-Repeat:
Need servlet or access thru FW
>Fix:
I found a quick & dirty fix while debugging the problem but, since this is my
first look at the jserv source, it could be just casually working ;-)

JServConnection.java

<                     params = HttpUtils.parsePostData(getContentLength(),
<                         servlet_in);
<                     if (params == null) {
<                         params = new Hashtable();
<                     }
<                     return false;
