File upload functionality

We are facing problems when we try to upload file attachments. The system hangs when they do that. However the occurrence is sporadic.

we are using struts 1.1 api for file upload

Current Settings:

ConnectionIO Time out: 30 secs
env : websphere 5.1 fic pack 3

Flow

1. The document is uploaded from the jsp using html:file tag. The request on submission, gets delegated to struts Action class.
2. The action class does the following
2.1 gets the document meta data (file name, file type, timestamp etc) from FormFile object
2.2 filters to see if the filetype is acceptable(.doc, .pdf, .cvs, etc).
2.3 Retrieves the uploaded document from FormFile.
Problem:
The File upload action hangs and fails to delegate the request to the Action Class.
The appserver (via the input stream related code) is trying to read the posted data (file data). This read operation times-out and an error is thrown in the logs.
Any clues as to how to resolve this. Also, please find the stack trace
below.

Time outs most often occur when the image is too big or not the correct file type.

Hi,
I had the same problem Instead of using the struts File upload feature, i used file upload from Apache commons in the action class. Hope this helps.
regards
sudha

hi sudha,

Struts uses Apache Commons FileUpload behind the scenes, I would be surprised if you approach would work...
