Hi--
I obtained a servlet from a book that allows me to upload files from a web browser to a web server; however, I want to write a piece of code that acts as the web browser now. I researched how the HTTP protocol handles file uploads, but my servlet won't accept my browser upload immitation. Anyone know how to do this?

If you mean that you want to write a client-side application that performs the upload this can be done ... however, it is non-trivial if you want to use a servlet that is expecting to process MultiPart data. An easier approach is to write a servlet that simply expects to receive the file data through a stream which the client piece writes to.
