Friends,
Can any one tell me how to use PUT method in Tomcat webserver.
I have one HTML file where I've written a code
<form method="PUT" action="servlet/PutEX">
where "PutEx" is my servlet which is has a method

doPut(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res){
}
I am using this method to upload a file, but its not working
Please let me inform whether this method is Server specific or I am doing something wrong.

Anant,
This is more something for the Tomcat forum. I'll move it there. In any case, this is certainly not server-specific and it should work. Unfortunately you give few details on what is (not) happening -- do you get exceptions; if yes, what's the stack trace? Doesn't the method get called? Does a GET get through to your servlet?

File uploads are a bit more special than just regular forms. Search both the servlets and apache/tomcat forums for more information. And post back some more details. For example: Does the PUT method not get called at all, or is it the file upload that fails?
