There seems to be a difference of opinion about what "should" be happening.

I am passing the Content-length, but I suppose this may not put the
appropriate EOF indicator (\n).  
I am certainly willing to try wrapping the incoming POST into something like
a StringReader in order to try and 
get the appropriate EOF.  I must admit, it seems like an extra step.

thanks for the input,

You saw the entry about this in the JDOM FAQ, right?
