Hi,
I have a UI in which I have a input type=file to upload a file containing some words.I also have a text area in the same UI where the user can enter certain words.
Now in the servlet to which the request from this UI submits to, I want both the file contents and the text entered by the user in the text area.
I have defined my form as:
<FORM NAME="myForm" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" METHOD='POST'/>

But in the servlet the contents of the textarea comes as null.As My UI is rendered by using XSLT I cannot set the text entered by the user in session.

Please let me know how I can access the textarea contents?
I am using jakarta's file upload utility for uploading the files.

Thanks,
Sunetra.
