recently, I just start to learn J2EE.

i read some code find all post method are passing the parameters in their body to Web server.

my question is :
Could a post method pass a object or object reference in their body to Web server(container). if it does, it will so cool. just like rmi.

The data posted typically comes from a browser, and the browser doesn't know anything about 'objects'

It is possible to set up applet-servlet communication, but typically the objects are sent (via an object stream) to the client rather than the other way around. I see security issues in accepting object data from clients.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
