I thought would let you all know the outcome of an experiment
I tried in order to work around the problem noted in
the original message cited below. Since this problem is
now fixed in JavaWebServer (see 'Post on Windows 95' in
http://jserv.javasoft.com/products/java-server/documentation/webserver1.0.2/release_notes.html
) I tried using their patched JRE with Jigsaw. It still
didn't work. Also, Jigsaw doesn't produce any
PATH_TRANSLATED environment variable at all.

I believe that there is a problem with jdk 1.1.1 (and 1.1 I believe) that
prevents the aguments in a POST from reaching the exec'd cgi process. It
appears that the stream that is returned by getOutputStream doesn't
actually deliver anything that is written on the stream. This leads to cgi
(legacy stuff sometimes just has to be hanled this way) not being
functional in jisaw (and Sun's Java Webserver as well)
