Hey guys. I have searched the forum and found topics like this one but I'm still confused. Maybe some of you guys can explain to me better.
this is what I want to achieve.
1o.) there's a form with a file upload (an image -gif or jpeg- to be precise)
2o.) As soon as the user submits the form, a servlet will handle the request, take the image and store it in a database (MySQL).
questions :
* I've found the oreilly classes, particularly this link, but I understand nothing . There are so many classes that you get confused, you don't know wich one you should use. Which one is the one I need?
* I want to restrict the user to upload ONLY images (gif or jpeg).
* Can you guys provide me with some code 'snippets' to start from, I really don't have a clue with this...

use jsp smart upload component. simple and easy to use. This code shud make it clear.

u can convert it to work with servlets.
As for restictions on file type, put an extension check or check the Mime type of file.
