I am trying to debug some code that is not mine. In the servlet, doPost method, the code reads BufferedReader reader = request.getReader(). If I load it from a form, i get an error:
"Invalid at the top level of the document. Error processing resource 'http://localhost:8080/paws/FeedXsarDataToCapstoneServ'. Line 1, Position 1"

I don't want the url in the top level of the document for a post, how do i do this?

That sounds like a very application specific error - where do you see it, in the HTML response on the browser?
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: request.getReader()
It's not a secret anymore!
