Subject RE: MultipartFileUploadApp succeeds uploading file - but not upploaded
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2006 16:53:25 GMT
Hello,

Thanks for the information: Trouble is, I did not know that Tomcat
needed "first aid" to be able to support uploadting files to the server.


Any good tutorials for a Tomcat newbie (not Java newbie :-) ) on how to
setup FileUpload with Tomcat ?

Geir Ove,
Tomcat as well as many other servlet containers do not provide support 
for multipart/form-data encoded content out of the box. One needs a 
special library to parse multipart uploads, such as Jakarta Commons 
FileUpload. What library are you using, if any?
