Subject Re: [FileUpload] commons.io-error... working now, still have one q..
Date Sun, 01 May 2005 16:31:20 GMT
ok, now this is working, this is weird, I did not change anything, and 
now files are uploading fine..

they upload to wherever I tell it to..  either

          File savedFile = new
  File(getServletContext().getRealPath("/"), fullFile.getName());

or

       File savedFile = new
File(getServletContext().getRealPath("/images"), fullFile.getName());

what I do want to know now is how to upload more than one file at a 
time, i.e., when you click on "browse" in file input field and get to 
"choose file" dialogue, is it possible to write code so you can select 
more than one file at a time?  thank you very much..  Frances
