Hi All,

Iam using struts. I have Jsp in which i have to attach file and fill in some details and submit and the details would be updated in db. Problem here is i can attach any number of files, on attaching a file the file should be displayed as link with filename and when user clicks the file must be opened.I cant move the file to db untill its submitted, so where i would be storing the file.Can anyone suggest a way to handle this situation.

You could either store the file in a temporary area on the database or in a temporary directory in the app server.

If the entire upload is complete, you can move the files to permanent storage.
I agree. Here's the link:
