When you compiled pkn.form.UploadForm, what java version did you use?

What java version is your server using?

This is usually a sign that a Java class was compiled in a later version of Java and then used in an earlier version. Which, of course, you cannot do.

I don't remember the version of java i had used before. But after my system got formatted i installed the os and loaded the java version 1.5.0_06. Actually i had create this page 6 months before, so i dont remember. Is there any way to find out which version i had used???

I don't think it's possible to find out which Java version was used to create a class file, but it is possible to find out which Java version it was created for - which is generally is what you need to know anyway. Check out the contents of byte 6 and 7 of the class file in question, and then head over to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_class_file#General_layout to learn what Java version they indicate.

Thanks everyone for all your response.
Actually i had used java version 6 which i recall it now after testing currently with version 6 instead of 5. So its working fine now.
And Tim Moores thanks for your help in letting me know of the site.
