Hi All,

I'd like to ask a question related to an issue I encountered with Glassfish 4.0 Web application deployment.

I created a REST Web service application with JAX-RS and deployed it on Glassfish 3.1.2 with no issue. Recently I tried deploying it on Glassfish 4.0 and encountered a warning as follows.

A servlet request to the URI http://localhost:8080/IipDev3/root/provider/publication/info:647254662 contains form parameters in the request body but the request body has been consumed by the servlet or a servlet filter accessing the request parameters. Only resource methods using @FormParam will work as expected. Resource methods consuming the request body by other means will not work as expected.

I use to store the form parameters, but it is indeed empty for HTTP POST requests. Strangely, it is not empty for HTTP PUT requests. I have tried searching for solutions on the Internet but got stuck (in the worst case I can fallback to Glassfish 3.1.2 deployment of course).

Code snippets:

public String publishToAnInformationChannel(@PathParam("infoId") String infoId,
MultivaluedMap formParams, @Context SecurityContext sc) {
// formParams empty + warning

public String updateAnInformationChannel(@PathParam("infoId") String infoId,
MultivaluedMap formParams, @Context SecurityContext sc) {
// formParams filled in + no warning

If anyone knows how to solve this issue, please let me know. Thanks a lot.

Best regards,
