Regarding the deprecated javax.servlet.http.HttpUtils class

The API docs say:

javax.servlet.http.HttpUtils
Deprecated. As of Java(tm) Servlet API 2.3. These methods were only useful with the default encoding and have been moved to the request interfaces.

I am pretty sure there's nothing in the HttpServletRequest interface, nor in the ServletRequest.

Am I wrong? How can you _parse_ the query string? (I use 1.4.0 SE & 1.3.0 EE)

  Use request.getParameter("parameter");

 If you are talking about getting the whole query use:

  request.getQueryString();

  or an Enumeration to get all the parameters:

  Enumeraiton enum = request.getParameterNames();

Oh! I thought the getParameter() was only for form data included in the response. You say that the same method parses the query string?!

 This method is used to get any parameters in the request, whether it is in a form (POST/GET) or explicitly in a URL (GET).
