Subject Re: file upload exception
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2007 18:38:05 GMT
hi!! i dont know about struts 2, but i tried uploading images to the server using Struts 1.2,and
it works just fine..i dont think we get the uploaded file as it is.. wat u said is true..
we get a temp file at different locations for each web container...basically watever files
are uploaded, are obtained as objects of class FormFile. we have a method called FormFile.getInputStream()..i
think the rest is understood..get the InputStream,name the o/p file appropriately using FormFile.getContentType()
,write to the o/p file . sorry that iam not able to give you the jsp code in the tags format
that you wrote..i dont know it.if u have multiple files to handle, get them as a FormFile
array, for each element,verify content type and call the method where the  file saving logic
is written

here is the code

in the jsp,

<html:form action="/" 
               method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
      File 1 <html:file property="myFile1"/> <br>
     <html:submit>Upload Files</html:submit>
in the form bean,
public class UploadForm extends ActionForm{
    FormFile myFile1;
   public FormFile getMyFile1() {
        return myFile1;
    public void setMyFile1(FormFile myFile1) {
        this.myFile1 = myFile1;
in the execute method of Action,

UploadForm uForm = (UploadForm) form;
    FormFile f = uForm.getMyFile1();
    InputStream is = f.getInputStream();
    FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream("putSomePathHere");
   int i=0;
                 i =;

                 if(i != -1) fout.write(i);
               } while(i != -1);
             System.out.println("Temp File removed");
