Multi-part requests are one of those annoying areas in JSP writing you try to avoid at all costs, and end up having to add 3rd party jars to get the job done. Why there's no transparent support I haven't got a clue.
Size is the key. Parts can be several gigabytes, so a standard support has to store them somewhere then give you a streamed access. The space has to be utilized after usage. If I were an author of the speac, I wouldn't deal with this complexity.

I dont think they read the mail or reply. I remember having sent an email (and it was not a stupid question)to EJB team 1.5 years ago and havent got any reply for that. In case they reply for the Servlet question I will send post the reply here.
