You can't really re-use public Response add(@Form MyForm form) method. 
There's a couple things you could do.  You could inject a Providers 
reference and change the media type:

public Response add(@Context Providers providers, InputStream content) {

    MessageBodyReader reader = 
providers.getMessageBodyReader(MultivaluedMap.class, null, null, new 

    MultivaluedMap<String, String> formParams = reader.readFrom(...);

You could also write a specific MessageBodyReader for your MyForm class 
for text/plain formats.
