sorry, wrong subject line is b/c first I had uploaded this jar, 
commons-fileupload-1.1-dev.jar, b/c that's what is says in Vikram 
Goyal's article to dl (which is diff. from what you dl if you dl from 
jakarta.apache site, namely commons-fileupload-1.0.jar..) w/the dev.jar 
I was getting error, and realized in the middle of writing 
post that maybe I should go back and dl jar I had dl'd originally, 
before I read Vikram Goyal's article...;)  and I did, and no longer get 
that error (but forgot to change subject line..;)..)
ok sorry, this is still confusing to me, as I said am just starting out 
w/jak.commons.FileUpload..  bottom line is right now no longer get that 
error but files still don't get uploaded..  thank you again.. Frances
