Subject Re: [fileupload] how does it handle anti-virus?

Thanks Craig for your information.

I was told that the anti-virus software on the server will be triggered when the
uploaded file (or file stream) is closed.  Assume this is the case, would you
please compare the mechanism/timing of file close between Struts 1.0.2 and
FileUpload package?  Thanks.
