Subject [fileupload] example code problem [WAS URGENT PROBLEM]

hi Gaston

this is the right list but since it's for a number of components, the 
convention is that you prefix your email with the component name. you 
should also probably choose a better subject. for more details please read 
httpL//jakarta.apache.org/site/mail.html and the mailing guidelines for 
this list.

as far as your problem goes, the only thing i can think of is that you 
have an old version of fileupload in your classpath. maybe some other 
people will be able to give you a better answer.
