Look at the struts-examples.war file that comes with the Struts download, and you will find an example that shows you how to upload a file.

Once you have uploaded the file, you will probably want to store it in a BLOB (Binary Large OBject) in your Oracle database. I'd suggest searching on "Oracle BLOB Java" to find examples of how to read and write a BLOB in Oracle.

I've been looking at a similar issue so I hope nobody minds me piggy-backing on this thread.
I've used the example struts upload code before, but now I'm trying to use a
DynaValidatorForm instead of handcrafting an actionForm. I've set my form property to this:

This config executes fine, but I've run out of ideas of how to cast the org.apache.struts.upload.CommonsMultipartRequestHandler$CommonsFormFile back to a FormFile object in my action class. I had though something like this would work:

I've also tried creating a CommonsMultipartRequestHandler object and inspecting its properties, but no luck there either.

Any ideas, pointers, hints or tips greatly appreciated.
