Subject RE: [fileUpload] [httpClient] CF file upload to Tomcat - sample code?
Date Thu, 24 Feb 2005 13:54:55 GMT
Yes, how to post from CF to the Tomcat server is the first issue. I
think we'll have to use httpClient to post. We can't use a form with a
file field, because you can't dynamically set the file name.

Then, there will be a return of a file from the server as a result of
what the server does with the xml file. I don't know how to handle that,

Hi Jennifer,
I'm not clear on what you mean by "next part" ... do you mean how to
post the xml from CF to the Tomcat server?

If so that's probably off-topic for commons-user list (but see cfhttp

Or are you asking about how to recieve the file on the Tomcat server?
Maybe this helps or maybe this
