PHP has built-in support to retrieve POST or GET request parameters since the first PHP versions.

However, when you want to decode parameters passed via PUT or other methods, you need to extract and decode the values in whatever format they are coming.

This class can extract request parameters including JSON objects passed in the request body besides any POST or GET values.
