What I read in the original message was a comment that the Struts file
upload implementation works only for text files, which is why yuubouna
turned to Commons FileUpload. Since it is not true that the Struts
implementation works only for text files, I suggested looking at it
further and taking the question up on the Struts User list, where
hundreds, if not thousands, of people have successfully used the
Struts implementation to upload binary files.
