Hi all, I'm struts newbie and this is my first post here
I'm using struts file upload to insert jpg images into MySQL database, and everything works fine as long as I dont try to insert "bigger" files (dont know exactly, but it works with 28k jpg image, and doesnt work with 70k for example).
These are the errors I get: javax.servlet.ServletException: Data truncation: Data too long for column 'image' at row 1 com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlDataTruncation: Data truncation: Data too long for column 'image' at row 1
I know that there is way to set maximum size of uploaded files in struts-config file, but the results were the same whatever I put for "maxFileSize".
Am I missing something, anyone had experienced similar problem?
I think you have to validate the size on the server side somewhere, either in form validation or in your action.
Edit: I did some investigation and found an attribute, I don't have time to test it, but you can give it a try: Add to struts-config <controller processorClass="org.apache.struts.action.RequestProcessor" maxFileSize="2M"/>
It should accept K, M or G. (kilo, mega, or giga).
If you will take a moment to look at the struts-examples.war file that comes with the Struts download, you will see an example of an upload that verifies that the uploaded file is below a certain size limit before allowing the upload. Just study the source code, and you will see how it's done.
