This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Also, did you grab the 2 required jars(fileupload.jar and the io jar)? HTH! [ February 23, 2007: Message edited by: g forte ]

It worked. Thanks G.
Is following the right way to implement upload functionality:
I am able to get the file name and file content at server side. Now with some string operations I get the extension then based on the extension I choose the image (icon of doc, ppt, txt, pdf etc) to display to user and I set href to the same kind of file that has the content which I just got, and that is called when clicked on that image.
Hope that is clear.
Is there any better way?

Sounds good, unless you need to offer this file(the one just uploaded) to other users to download. In that case, I would change the mime type to response.setContentType("application/x-download"); Which would force the download dialog as opposed to opening it up in the browser. HTH
