Yes, and I already mentioned how earlier in the thread.  However, I just
actually looked at the classes and I had forgotten that it's simpler
than than (casting to HttpServletRequestAdapter, etc) because the
Transport interface directly provides access to transport attributes,
which in the case of the HttpServletRequestAdapter will be the servlet
request attributes.  So you can do something like this (depending on the
scripting language you are using):

$requestContext.getInboundMessageTransport().getAttribute(String name)

As Jim said, the "AJP_" prefix should be omitted from what you supply as
the 'name' parameter there.

No, since all the servlet request stuff is hidden behind the interface
