Having problem with <input type="file"..
I have the following form element in my jsp page:
<form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="<%=someUrl%>">
<input type="file" name="userfile">
which allows a user to select a filename by clicking on the browse button.
In my servlet, I am trying to get the name of the file selected by the user as follows:
String sFileName = request.getParameter("userfile");
When I print out sFileName, it prints null. Does anyone have any idea or suggestion how to get this user entered filename in the servlet?
Thanks a lot!

When form encoding is "multipart/form-data" which is required for upload forms, you will not be able to retrieve form data normally (using request.getParameter)
Have you heard of JspSmartUpload component?
