Ancient Servlet Problem - No-one has ever had an answer to this one!

OK, I've been posting this question on just about every board from here to the ends of the Earth for the past YEAR, trying to find SOMEONE that can help me. The question is very simple:
HOW DO YOU MAKE A SERVLET FORWARD A REQUEST USING POST?
Every servlet technique for forwarding uses GET. This is driving me nutz! If you have an answer to this, let me know and I'll buy you a coffee the next time we meet up!

jasonkosowan,
JavaRanch has a Naming Policy Please read and follow it. (That'll be my cup of coffee )
A servlet can forward any request(GET or POST) as long as you follow a rule: It can not write any information to the response before doing the forwarding!

Hi there, Carl
Thanks for your post. I'll test it out and see if it fits the bill.
You also mentioned the naming policy here. Is there something wrong with my username? This is my actual name.

I think the issue with your name is the formatting. The naming policy guide states: "For your user name, use a first name, a space and last name."
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
