I am building a multipart form for a user to upload pics to his site (too dumb to use ftp) and Ive hit a snag that I dont quite get. I have 2 hidden fields that hold the product number and a task variable that I use in the main controller's switch statement. Im not getting these 2 fields using a javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest - .getParameter("field_name"). Im using the Oreilly servlet package for the image uploads but the main controller uses this task variable extensively & playing games trying to figure out if they are uploading or one of the other 20 things seems like a real pain in the you-know-what. Does the javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest not recognize info from a multipart form?
I swear Ive done this before but cant seem to find the code! Any & all "kicks in the brain" would be much appreciated ... I know Im missing somethign stupid here & I am working on 2 hours sleep so Im probably just brain-dead! Thanks [ September 02, 2004: Message edited by: DC Dalton ]
