Hi all!

In a JSF form i have this code fragment.

<f:verbatim >
<input name="importFile" type="file" size="10">
</f:verbatim >

To upload the selected file I use commons-fileupload-1.0.jar from tomcat's 5.0 server dir.

I get this exception:

the request doesn't contain a multipart/form-data or multipart/mixed stream, content type header is application/x-www-form-urlencoded

JSF forms dont allow the attribute encType to be set.
I tried this and the hole aplication dont work.

Does any one know a solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Berciu,

I recommend you look into using MyFaces (http://www.myfaces.org/). MyFaces has a component for file uploads.
