I was just pointing to the com.oreilly.servlet package FAQ...last question

"I want an applet client so I can upload a full directory of files (or some
such thing). Where can I find that?

Yes, see It's loaded with features
like directory-at-a-time uploading. Tell them sent you!"

I wasn't suggesting to use COS since the FileUpload functionality exists in
Jakarta [fileupload]; I prefer the Jakarta version. It was just a reference
to look at regarding java interoperability.

I'll be away for a few weeks w/ intermittent email, but I like the idea of
having a client/applet like Infomentum's in o.a.c.fileupload as a
supplemental or contrib package, perhaps we can see about doing something
