Reply-To: "Commons HttpClient Project" <commons-httpclient-dev@jakarta.apache.org>

I'm using a MultipartPostMethod to upload a file to a servlet:

File file = new File(strUrl);

HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
HostConfiguration hostConfig = new HostConfiguration();
MultipartPostMethod mpPost = new MultipartPostMethod();

 hostConfig.setHost(someURL.getHost(), someURL.getPort(), someURL.getProtocol());
client.setConnectionTimeout(30000);
client.setHostConfiguration(hostConfig);

mpPost.addParameter("someName", "someValue");
mpPost.addParameter(file.getName(), file);

mpPost.setPath(strPath);
client.executeMethod(mpPost);

String confirmUpload = tpPost.getResponseBodyAsString();
mpPost.releaseConnection();

file.delete();  // this is being blocked.

After the upload, I would like to delete the file off of my disk.  Using other
methods of uploading the file (in particular a PutMethod), I was able to then
delete the file after the upload.  Now that I am using the MultipartPostMethod
obj for the upload, I am unable to delete the file (the return value is false,
and there is no SecurityException being thrown - no SecurityManager even set as
of this point either).

So, I guess my question is whether there is a call to the MultipartPostMethod
obj that I'm overlooking that would release it's connection (I'm sure that it is
opening an InputStream of some sort to read the file contents, in order to form
the HTTP message) to the file - so that I can then have unimpeded access to it
for other operations?
