ASP's getServerVariables method returns the combination of a lot of things such as form parameters, querystring parameters, HTTP headers, and some TCP information, as a single collection.

All of this information is available in the HttpServletRequest object but not all jumbled up in a single method like getServerVariables.

It wouldn't be difficult, to emulate getServerVaribles on your own using the request object.

That's not going to get you anywhere. What are you expecting and what are you getting? Making people pull teeth in order to help you isn't the best of strategies.
