Getting HttpServletRequest from rails to Java class

Hi,

We have a rails app, from which i want to send the form post parameters
to a java class.

I am using

request.env[‘java.servlet_request’]

to get the HttpServletRequest obj and pass it to the java class.

However it is unable to get the request parameters which are sent
through post.

If I pass the parameters as query parameters I am able to get them,
however I
am unable to get the form Post parameters

I also tried using
servlet_request
but that doesnt help either.

Is there any way aroung it?

Thank you.

What version of JRuby-Rack are you using? This sounds like a variation
on a earlier bug where once we read the request post body, it’s no
longer available to others. It may still exist in your case because
JRuby-Rack reads the post body, tries to rewind the Ruby IO object
wrapping the input stream, but perhaps the servlet input stream cannot
be rewound at all.

In this case I suggest you pass a servlet request wrapper to the Java
code as follows (note, untested):

java_import javax.http.servlet.HttpServletRequestWrapper
class RubyRequestWrapper < HttpServletRequestWrapper
class ArrayEnumeration
include java.util.Enumeration

def hasMoreElements

def initialize(request)
super(request.env[‘java.servlet_request’])
@request = request
end
def getParameter(key)
request.params[key]
end
def getParameterNames
request
end
end

Sorry, my email got cut off accidentally as I was writing the code.
Should’ve written the whole thing in a proper text editor :slight_smile:

Here’s the code, hopefully it gives you an idea:

I think it might just be a limitation described in the servlet spec.
