Subject Re: Fileupload Help! Urgent!

The request stream for a multipart/form-data can only be read once - by the 
time Struts decides what Action to execute, goes through setting up the Form 
and validating, it's actually already read the request.  Use a formBean that 
has accessors/mutators for org.apache.struts.upload.FormFile's, and pass the 
formBean to your action.

See the struts-upload webapp for a very good example.

The short answer is - you don't HAVE to do all the junk below when you're 
using Struts - the smart developers for Struts did all that junk for you so 
you can just use your file directly.
