problem with struts file upload.

I am trying to upload a file using struts. I have specified the form's enctype="multipart/form-data".
And in the form bean, I have org.apache.struts.upload.FormFile attribute.

But i am not able to get the file content. The FormFile attribute is null in the form bean. When I debugged, theres this class ... CommonsMultipartRequestHandler.
and theres a section of code that returns the file items.

*** ...

// Parse the request into file items.
List items = null;
try {
items = upload.parseRequest(request);

The List variable, 'items' is being returned with 0 elements.

Could you please help me out in this?
