Hi , i am trying to read data posted to a servlet using
The problem is the data is coming with special
characters ( + for space etc ).
Can anyone suggest a solution that already exists!
the only way I can think of is read character by character and replace special characters. Is this reliable ?
Thanks for any help

Is there a particular reason you need to read (and i assume parse) the POST info as a stream?

Won't a nicely packaged 'request' object do ?
