problem with org.apache.commons.fileupload  RSS feed

I was reading an article about the org.apache.commons.fileupload component
and also here:

and it just seems not to work for me. I would appreciate your help.

I am using the jar file commons-fileupload-1.0-dev.jar that was downloaded from here:

I work on eclipse and it does not compile.

The first problem is that it cannot find the method isMultipartContent in the following code (taken from that article example):

// first check if the upload request coming in is a multipart request
boolean isMultipart = FileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);

I am looking in the eclipse into that jar and it seems like that method is really not in the FileUpload class.

What is wrong?

It is there in the source code, so why not in the class found in the far file.

By the way, when I looked at the jakarta reference here:

and they say this method is deprecated:

"isMultipartContent(HttpServletRequest) - Static method in class org.apache.commons.fileupload.FileUploadBase
Deprecated. Use the method on ServletFileUpload instead."

So why do they use it in their code.

Also, they say "Use the method on ServletFileUpload instead".

That class is suppposed to be in the package:
import org.apache.commons.fileupload.servlet.*;

But there is not such a subdirectory in the zip source code I downloaded from the jakarta project.

Could you please help me solve these problems.

Thank you,

I'm a little suspicious about the source of your jar. The URL has "Attic" in the name which means it's from a dead cvs head revision.

Why don't you try again from jakarta page.
