In my project I need to read a data from text file sent from the file at the client side and update database.
Problem I am facing is.
1. Should I store the file temporally in the server? (i.e., until it is updated to the database).
2. How to get the file from client to server.
Please give your valuable suggestion at the earliest.
Thanks in advance.

Use multipart requests for file upload.

use Oreilly classes or JSPSmartUpload. Remember that multipart forms are handled completely different. This is the reason you use these classes.
