The problem is I can't receive the value of path or other parameters.
Some parameters are in JSP and passed to Servlet. I use request.getParameter("path"). But, it doesn't work.
Any idea? thanks.
String path="c:\\test\\";
form name="form1" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post"
onSubmit="return validateForm(this)" action="/cfhc/servlet/UploadTest"
input type=hidden name=path value="<%=path%>"
input type=submit name=upload value="upload" size=25
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest req,HttpServletResponse res) throws
PrintWriter out=res.getWriter();
String path = req.getParameter("path"); //set default upload directory

In case the request is a multi-part request the request cannot be accessed directly. There is a package in Struts which has been taken from Oreily through which you can access the multi-part request data
