Just wondering if you could help with my next issue?
i am writing a function that allows the user to upload images/metadata from their localk machine onto my web syste,
this is done in 3 steps: 1. browse to and select images from local hard-disk, click upload > continue 2. goto next page and enter metadata > continue 3. goto next display summary of images and metadata > confirm
now I can do all this except I can't get the upload image thing working.
1. Why does the JSP return NULL for the hidden value 'step' when I put the [enctype="multipart/form-data"] in the <form>>
Multipart forms work differently from regular form submissions. Because of this, request.getProperty doesn't work with them. The libraries mentioned in the link I gave you all have their own way of retrieving form parameters when uploading.
