Hi All

I require your assistance in the above matter.

I am trying to upload a file.

I pass this to a servlet.

The problems I experienced:

I can no longer access my normal parameter (i.e. textline) in the form � This is due to enctype attribute set to multipart/form-data . How do I access them now?
How do I filter for pdf �s? I tried using the accept attribute on IE and this does not work. Any Ideas?
How do I upload the file. I tried using the code attached. Where does FileOutputStream fileOut = new FileOutputStream(saveFile); save the file to. How can specify a location.

I am considering using ftp to upload the file. How do I get the attachment into an object like ?

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.
