contentType value is coming as null in fileprocess.jsp.

<%@ page language="java" contentType="multipart/form-data; charset=ISO-8859-1"
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
<title>File Upload</title>

<form name="fform" action="fileprocess.jsp">
Upload File:<input type="file"/>
<input type="submit" value="submit"/>



String contentType = request.getContentType();
out.println("contentType "+contentType);

The JSP page directive sets the contentType of the response. You're inspecting the contentType of the request.
