As the title suggest, could anyone give me hints and pointers to get me started?

I've tried yahoo and google search with no concrete tutorial/examples in sight.

thanks guys,

going through those links now.

Found some tutorials earlier on this too, using JSP. Tweaked their code a bit and it works in my machine (Resin 2.1 + J2SDK1.4.0).

But when uploaded into my hosting server to be tested, this exception pops up:
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission
/tut/z.png delete)
at java.security.AccessControlContext.checkPermission(AccessControlContext.java:264)

at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:595)

While waiting for the hosting to get back to me on this issue, I was wondering if this is caused by the restriction imposed by the hosting, or should I tweak my code a bit more to fix it ?

In a hosted environment you won't have access to the complete file system, just to your personal space or web app directory. That most likely does not include a top-level directory called "/tut". You'll need to save the image in a directory that's part of your environment there.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
