Is anyone out there experiencing any weirdness when using the above stated package/class. When i upload a file that is larger than what maxSize (MultipartRequest.maxSize) I am dead in the water. Netscape will even throw up a error dialog box stating that a network error occured while sending data: connection aborted. I am catching the IOEception but somoething else is happening (to the request object?) that I cannot figure out. any insight on this would be greatly appreciated pjw

I found the answer on suns dev con. the call to request.getContentLength() was the root of the evil. I am not sure why this call was screwing things up but the solution is: if the value returned by request.getContentLength() is to big you need to get the servlet input stream and "flush" it like this
where theLength is the value from then you can use the request object w/ no weirdness [This message has been edited by Paul Wetzel (edited September 18, 2000).]
