I am trying to design a form which takes as input a file name. I am not upload this file just storing the file name within a database. I would like to allow the user
to browse to the file to ensure the filename is correct. If I were using plain HTML I could use <input type="file"> . However, this is embedded in a a4j:form which is
doing other things. Is there a JSF component similiar to input type="file"? or is there another way to do this? below is an example of the current working code. It is
using the <h:inputText> tag top capture the file name. I've highlighted the code below with ****** on the line in question.

Joe

Hi Joe, welcome to the Ranch!

Just one thing about posting... when you post code, it's nice for it to be formatted. That's why we have the "Code" button above the posting box. If you click it, you'll see a pair of tags appear. If you paste your code between those tags then it comes out nicely formatted. I've edited your post to do that.
