I'd like to know how can I get a Parameter from a "multipart/form-data" form.

I've written an abstract class that (among other things) retreives multipart/form-data parameters. I've posted the source here "". Take a look at the code specifically these 3 methods.
1) getMultipartData (as well as comments at beginning of method)
2) getMultipartParameter
3) getMultipartFilename
P.S. You won't be able to compile it, since you need a bunch of other classes, however it should be enough enough to get you going. If you need more help with it, let me know (
