First off, my apologies if I'm posting in the wrong location. I have spent an hour combing through messages and different search patterns looking for an answer.
Configuration (Windows, Apache 443, JBoss 8010, PostgreSQL 5432)
Libraries (Standard, Hibernate)
I have an application that harvests data from a Common Access Card using a python script (mod_python) and formulates a username/password which is then placed in the SSL stack. Subject request goes from Apache to JBoss on 8010 where our extended httpservelet's doPost() routine should take over.
On a few user accounts only during a post (gets are confirmed to work) the request is null by the time it gets to our doPost(). Note that this design works perfectly for gets and 98% of all posts.
tcpdump on localhost 8010 shows the data being transmitted from Apache to JBoss in transit thus affirming that JBoss is the culprit. A Valve on the JBoss host that displays the request shows an empty Post for these particular posts that are failing.
The python handler/technique was used in a Apache+Zope configuration without fail for years, the only real thing that changed was JBoss.
Does anyone have a suggestion on where to begin or who to ask? Should I include more detail?
