problem with commons FileUpload

I am trying to use the apache fileUpload to parse multipart request. But it is ignoring all the form elements upto and including the the first file element.

This is the html code

This is the JSP code (which parses the request)

I found this code in some online tutorial. When i submit the form to the jsp it only prints out file2 & file3. If i have more form elements before file1 even they are ignored.

Has anyone encountered such a problem before ?? Btw i am running this under WSAD.

if the enctype is multipart/form-date it will take only file field. <FORM name="filesForm" action="temp.jsp" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

I've not used that Upload component.

but if you have the enctype as multipart, it doesnt mean that you can have only 1 file component or only one form component. That is wrong.
