Subject Re: [FILEUPLOAD] Problem with huge files (>2GB)

I understand you have a problem of file upload size limit.
Check the docs if it has defult size of 2 GGB.
I used upload which is with struts.
In struts which uses commons-upload ,the upload size can be controlled in 
struts-config.xml file
<controller bufferSize="8192"  maxFileSize="100K"

Let us see if some one suggests a alternative solution.
