Getting POST parameters for a JavaScript webscript

For webscripts written in JavaScript, I'm able to get parameters in the query string via the "args" object. However, after looking over the object list in Chapter 9 of "Professional Alfresco", looking through the wiki, playing around a bit, and searching the web, I seem to be unable to find a way to get POST parameters (parameters passed in the HTTP message's body). Is there a way to access these parameters from a webscript?

As an example, here is how I'm passing the variables to the webscript from client side (this is for a Share dashlet that's talking to the repository):


var sUrl = Alfresco.constants.PROXY_URI + "folder-search";
var postData = "searchTxt=" + document.getElementById("jtf_text").value;
var request = YAHOO.util.Connect.asyncRequest('POST', sUrl, callback, postData);
