Subject [fileupload] Cancel FileUpload when FileSizeMax is exceeded
Date Fri, 25 Jan 2013 11:18:41 GMT
Hi All,

I have a JSF application which runs in JBoss 6.1 which uses internal the 
Tomcat Servlet container.
I want to prevent too large file uploads and have set the property "
fileSizeMax" to 10MB within the class "FileUploadBase". It works, the file 
upload throws an FileSizeLimitExceededException for all files larger than 
But the main problem is, that the whole file will be transferred over the 
network. I have found this out by checking the network traffic.

How can I interrupt the file transfer when the max size is exceeded 
without transferring the whole file? I assume that the file will be 
transferred in multiple packages because of the web form attribute enctype

Best regards
