Dear all,
i just want to upload a file from a jsp page. To do so, i just made the enctype="multipart/form-data", by this the file has been uploaded successfully. but the problem i can get the other form values (i.e. from other controls like textfield, select etc., thro. request.getParameter()) it's just returning empty.
if i make the enctype as "text/html" or if i remove the enctype property i can access the form field values but the file is not uploading...
anybody knows the solution for this problem...
thks in advance.
