Can you give me a SIMPLE examples of how to uploading files onto the server(tomcat) using servlets? I have found some examples, but are very complex and hard to understand (for me...i'm new in java-servlets)... so i'm looking for a minimum servlets example..Thnx!

apache fileupload is an open source project that lets you easily upload files via servlets, etc.
Check it out here:
download the jar, put it in your web-inf/lib folder and read the examples on how to use the api.
good luck,
