I m using this line in my jsp page...
<form name="uploadtest" action="uploadtest" method="POST" encType="multipart/form-data">


This is my servlet page....

public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException
{
response.setContentType(CONTENT_TYPE);
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();


String optionalFileName="";
String fileName="";
boolean fileUpload=false;


boolean isMultipart = ServletFileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);

if(isMultipart)
{
FileItemFactory factory = new DiskFileItemFactory();

ServletFileUpload upload = new ServletFileUpload(factory);
upload.setSizeMax(100000);

//List items=null;

try {
List items = upload.parseRequest(request);
System.out.println("Items are"+items);
Iterator itr = items.iterator();
FileItem itm1 = null;

while (itr.hasNext())
{
FileItem item = (FileItem) itr.next();
System.out.println("Entered in Servlet");
if(item.isFormField())
{
String name = item.getFieldName();
System.out.println("Field name: "+name);
if(name.equals("filename"))
optionalFileName = item.getString();

}
else
itm1=item;
}

if (itm1!=null)
{
fileName = itm1.getName();
System.out.println("File name: "+fileName);
}
if (itm1.getSize() > 0)
{

if (optionalFileName.trim().equals(""))
fileName = FilenameUtils.getName(fileName);
else
fileName = optionalFileName;

String dirName = "c:/24-08/";

File saveTo = new File(dirName + fileName);
try {
itm1.write(saveTo);
}catch (Exception e){ }
}
} catch (FileUploadException e) {

System.out.println("File upload exception" +e);
}
}
}
}
