I am writing a servlet that requires file upload. As the form type is multipart/form-data, how can I get other input fields in addition to the file? I've tried to use getParameterValues(), but seems that doesn't work.
The html code is something like
<form action="abc" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">
<input type="text" name="ID">
<input type="file" name="uploadFile">

Get com.oreilly.servlet package to use multipart classes to serve your need.

Thanx Pual.
I'm wondering if I can get an array of the parameter values as if I use String[] getParameterValues() in default form submission.

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
