Hi,

I am trying to build a web application from where file can be uploaded to the server.

the html page looks like as follows:-




The web.xml file looks like:-



I am usging tomcat 6.

I have written a FileUploaderServlet that writes the file to the server's local directory.
The FileUploaderServlet looks as follows:-




Everything works fine and I am even able to get the file on server. But once the doPost() method of the servlet completes, it gives me

HTTP Status 405 - HTTP method POST is not supported by this URL.

Any idea where things are going wrong?

Hi Swastik,

I have already overridden the doGet and doPost method in the servlet.

Nandini,

Just include the <http-method> element inside servlet mapping section, and see if that helps. Do restart the server after making the changes.

<servlet-mapping> element in web.xml can contain only <servlet-name> and url-pattern.

The schema doesn't allow me to put http-method tag inside it.

That is not necessary.

Simply implementing doPost() and not calling the super method should be sufficient.

thanks Bear!

That did the trick.

Would you please tell me why the problem occurs when I make the call to super?

The super instances of the doXyz methods specifically issue a response that says that the method is not supported!
