and FileUploadWithAction, so once this gets straightened out, expect a centralized file uploads

explaining how to upload other than using flow.

-To get this example to work as written, you will need a !FileUploadManager component that
does what the flowscript is asking it to do.  So first, grab the cocoon-upload.jar file attached
to this page (see below), and drop it into your WEB-INF/lib directory.

-Alternatively, you can write the following java code in your sitemap components:
-{{{

-  import org.apache.cocoon.servlet.multipart.*;

-  Request request = ObjectModelHelper.getRequest(obj);
-  if (request instanceof MultipartHttpServletRequest) {

-    if (part != null) {
-      // do something with it
-    } else {
-      // parameter not found

-  } else {
-    // upload is disabled
-  }
+{{{
+<upload_manager>
+    <uploadfolder>/some/where</uploadfolder>
+</upload_manager>
 }}}
+
+5) Set the '''enable-uploads''' parameter in WEB-INF/web.xml to '''true''' (this is already
done for you if you built Cocoon with 'cocoon.enable-uploads=true' in build.properties or
local.build.properties).

+Restart Cocoon, and you're on your way.
+
+This example calls the upload() method of the component... but this !FileUploadManager component
also has some other methods, for controlling the directory into which files are uploaded,
etc.  Take a look at the interface in !FileUploadManager.java (from the .jar file) to learn
about those.
