Hi, I was wondering how do I send a file through a browser dialog box? After the user selected the file to be submited from an applet, how do I receive the file from the server side?
Thanks.

U can use a bare html with ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" as Form attribute.
Example:
<HTML>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF">
<FORM METHOD="POST" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="Upload.jsp">
<INPUT TYPE=FILE NAME="FILE1"><BR>
<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT VALUE="Upload!">
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>
See http://www.servlets.com/resources/com.oreilly.servlet/index.html
for to get idea about what to be done in the server side.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
