Hi

I want to read xml file in a servlet as part of a HTTP post request. How do I do this. Am I going to use request.getInputStream() to read data or what. Is that possible to read the file as a file or may be separate elements.
Thanks
Imad

If it is part of body there is no need to create a file.

You can pass this stream in InputSource of XML parser. It works like a charm.
