Hi I am trying to upload a file using FormFile.So it creates a temporary file in the server.To get the bytes of that file I can use FormFile.getFileData().Can anyone tell me what would be the encoding of those bytes.Will that be UTF-8 or encoding from the OS(that is System.getProperty("file.encodign")).

hmmm...maybe I am missing out on something but I have used FormFile several times to upload binary and text files and store them either in an Oracle database or as a file on a Solaris based server and I never had to worry about byte encoding. Are you seeing problems?
