POST data with a file upload

Hello,

I am attempting to make a POST request to another servlet with a file upload. I have the code below but it is not working properly. I posted this in the servlet forum as I am trying to use one servlet to contact another.

I think all but the file writing is ok. The other data being written are all string fields and should be correct.

The service that I am posting to works fine. I have tested it independently with success. However, I can't seem to send the file and other through this code.

I actually don't need to pass the file. I have code that reads the file into a variable that can be passed.

However, I need to emulate the multipart form. How do I emulate the multipart form.

Can anyone verify that I am doing this correctly?

I should add, the exception thrown by the servlet I am trying to contact is "Posted content type isn't multipart/form-data".
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
