POST method and PerlAuthenHandler
I am writing a perl authentication module for Apache2 that must inspect some request parameters before authorizing the requestor and forwarding the request to a tomcat server via mod_jk.
With the GET request method this is easy, I can inspect the parameters using $r->args and forward the request.
With the POST request method I can READ the request body, but it appears that the request body is removed from the request and is not forwarded to tomcat via mod_jk. Is this correct?
How do I inspect POST request parameters without modifying the request?
I know there must be a standard way to do this kind of thing but I have been unable find the answer after several hours of reading.
Thank you for your help.
