Subject RE: MultipartFileUploadApp succeeds uploading file - but not upploaded
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2006 17:32:02 GMT
Hello,

Again, thanks. 
Using HTTPClient I tried to upload a File to a HTTP Internet Information
Server directory that I set up. HTTClient then gave a sensible error
message: 

Uploading filetoupload.txt to http://aika:80/uploads/
Upload failed, response=Method Not Allowed

Shouldn't HTTClient do the same towards Tomcat when? I do not know
whether Tomcat, HTTClient or both are to blaime: It maybe another
lacking in the messy HTTP Protocol.

The only way I know can check if Tomcat really did what it was supposed
to do, is to parse the response and see if the file is present: Again a
messy business, as there does not seem to be a standard format for the
Directory Listing ! Or am I wrong?

regards

Geir Ove
