@FormParam with CXF 2.2

I am using CXF 2.2 for implementing restful services. I have a post method in the service
public boolean login(@FormParam("userName") String userName,
@FormParam("password") String password )

I am not able to get the form param values in the service class there are always null. Does CXF 2.2 support @FromParam? If yes, is there any configuration to make it to work?

I am using apache commons http client to test my service:
PostMethod post = new PostMethod("http://localhost:8080/rest/login");
post.addParameter("userName", "testuser");
post.addParameter("password", "testpassword");

HttpClient httpclient = new HttpClient();
int result = httpclient.executeMethod(post);

Could any one suggest me where am i doing wrong?

I realized i made a silly mistake. It works now.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
