HI,

Is there any way to read the multipart form-data file content in servlet?
I have seen oreilly servlet api but that will save the file in the server. But i want to read the uploaded filecontent without saving.
Can you suggest me the better way to handle this?

Thanks

My guess is your better off saving it to a temp directory and reading it from there, rather than holiding it all in memory. Depends on the size of the file I assume.
