I was trying to get an ExtJS 2.2 JsonStore to send raw parameters to a WCF service. Catch-22 was that WCF doesn't accept raw params, and JsonStore seems to like to throw POSTs only (by default) when requesting data. And this breaks the deadlock. Very nice.

Edgardo Rossetto’s Blog � Raw HTTP POST with WCF:

Here’s how you read the input Stream:

public void DoWork(Stream input)


StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(input);

string s = sr.ReadToEnd();


NameValueCollection qs = HttpUtility.ParseQueryString(s);

string firstName = qs["firstName"];

string lastName = qs["lastName"];

// Do work here
