Have you tried using a Reader in the request method getReader() returns a BufferedReader to read the Body of the request Object.

i'm confused here....what do you mean by message body, and reading from a servlet? are you sending binary data to the servlet?
httpservlets have a defined structure....if you are sending data using a POST method, then the doPost method can be used to parse out the data using request.getParameter("nameofvalue")....if you are sending multi-part data, then it's a bit more tricky, but i also doable (e.g. if you are uploading a file to the servlet).
I agree. Here's the link:
