In the Welcome thread, Jayson mentions the following:

I helped with the JSP 2.0 specification, and Kevin helped with both the Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 specification

So I thought I'd ask ...

* was there any particular rationale for not supporting multi-part form submissions 'natively'? (ie: why require a servlet developer to use a 3rd party jar for something that is increasingly a standard aspect of web programming?) If it's about file i/o, what's the servlet temp directory for?

There was no paticular rational for this apart from the fact that this round of the servlet specification was never going to ba about larger changes or additions. It is something that will be on the table for the next version
