You can�t do this without uploading the file on the server.
Other alternatives are using Applet or using ActiveX.

Hi Guys,

Thanx for uor reply's.
The exact requirement is that I've a web page(JSP) on which I need to upload multiple files. Now when a file is selected I need to display the size of the selected file. I've a check that the total size of all the selected files cannot exceed a certain limit.

The other option is that it can be done through ActiveX, but I dont know of any Java API which which can extract the uploaded files at the server end.

Hi,

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Actually I've never worked on applets,
It would be gr8 if you can provide me --
Some kind of example code for applet or
some java api to access the Active X at server side.

Thanks
