only works if the request has an "irregular" content-type such as text/xml which
is what you get with XML-RPC, or text/x-python-pickled-dict which is
Pickle-RPC. If the content-type is one of the standard types
multipart/form-data or application/x-www-form-urlencoded, then the raw input is
processed into fields and discarded when the HTTPRequest object is initialized,
presumably for memory reasons. This is all done in the Python standard
library cgi module, so it would be a bit of work for us to pry that apart and
handle it in a different way.
I have a
suspicion that what you want to do is to reconstruct the raw input in order to
re-POST it to another HTTP server. If so, then for
application/x-www-form-urlencoded data something like

I can't seem to get self.request().rawInput() (with or
without the rewind=1
option) to work.
Essentually I have a webpage that calls a servlet via a
form/Post and if I
then call self.writeln(self.request().rawInput()) I get back
None. Now I
know the form is sending some data, because all it does is
send a hidden
variable. Any thoughts as to what I am doing worng?
rawInput will only return a file if the data being POSTed can't be consumed
by the cgi/FieldStorage code first. If you're using a typical form posting,
then the content type would be application/x-www-form-urlencoded and the
data from the form gets sent as encoded name value pairs. You can access
them from your servlet code using self.request().field(myFormFieldName). If
it's a multipart form, then you can get to the parts using
In either of those two cases there won't be a file available from
rawInput(), it's already been processed by that point. This shouldn't be a
problem though, as you should be able to access all the data through
self.request().field() or self.request().fieldStorage()
For content-types other than application/x-www-form-urlencoded or
multipart/form-data, you can use rawInput().
