Yes I know a bit this part :-)

But the upload screen have different use case !!!!
It's a ui with the features of adding more than one file. So once the file
is added to the ui it is added and saved in the user session for be really
saved in archiva when the user will confirm the full upload.

So don't use this as a sample if you want upload files to Archiva

Just use PUT to the uri as simply as maven do when deploying that will save
your time.

Agree. If you have a bit of time please create an issue for this.
