PUT and DELETE can not be used with forms. For some further information, have a look here and here.

You can most definitely use PUT, just not from inside an HTML form. As the articles I linked to mention, there are several options for the client side, e.g. Jakarta Commons HttpClient (or even java.net.HttpUrlConnection) or the XmlHttpRequest in JavaScript (although JavaScript can't interact with files, of course). On the server side you can use the standard servlet API (the HttpServlet class has doXYZ methods for all HTTP methods, including PUT and DELETE).

Other ways of handling files on the server would be WebDAV, which is shipped with Tomcat, or the standard HTTP file upload described here.
