I'm confused by this. If you use HttpClient, you'd be running on the
(ColdFusion?) server, uploading to another (Tomcat) server. If you use
"a form with a file field", you're talking about something that would
be posted by a browser to a (ColdFusion or Tomcat) server. Which are
you trying to do?

Again, I'm confused. If the file is coming back from a Tomcat server
to a ColdFusion server, then isn't this then a ColdFusion question?

You prefixed your subject line with [FileUpload], but none of what
you're asking appears to be related to FileUpload. Sorry if I'm
completely misunderstanding.
