Subject Re: [FileUpload] Testing for existence of file

Lo, Rhino,

One thing you have to do is to integrate whatever you do here with
what you do about uploading empty files.  As long as your policies on
the two are consistent and integrated, I don't see a big problem.  If
you accept empty files, then you might have to inform your client that
the file was empty and that this can be so for a number of reasons
(including a non-existent file) which you might want to list with
choices to the client on what to do.  You might also want to take care
of this on the client end, leaving the server side ignorant of
whatever choices the client happens to be making.
