Does anyone know where I could get a Java Applet that to upload files to a web server? I am creating a photo sharing site for my family and friends and I need a way to allow users to upload their photos to the server. The basic requirements are something that will:

1) Work in the most environments possible (IE, Netscape, Mac, etc)
2) Allow setting the maximum size of a single file that can be uploaded
3) Allow setting the total maximum size of all the files that a particular user can upload
4) Allow only a certain file type to be uploaded (jpeg, gif, etc)
5) It should allow multiple file uploading at one time

If anyone knows where I could get something like this or knows of any resources that would help me build something like this I would greatly appreciate it.

 I do not know any Applet that does this but you can definetely do it by using Servlets/JSP. Take a look at the O'Reilly packet for uploading files or here: http://www.javazoom.net/jzservlets/uploadbean/uploadbean.html , http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2001/04/05/upload.html , http://www.servlets.com/jservlet2/examples/index.html

  Hope it helps.

Can this be implemented on a Microsoft environment? I'm running IIS as the web server. If so, what would I need to do?

 You can use Windows but not IIS. IIS supports ASP (VB). You need Tomcat or another Server that supports Servlets/JSP. You can run Tomcat on a Windows platform if you want to.

  All you need to do is set up Tomcat (or any other Servlet engine you like such as JRun) and write a Servlets that does this. As I told you there is already one that is doing it by O'Reilly, so you can just use that one.

  Hope this helps.

are you interested in browser-to-web server upload only ? if yes - HTTP supports file uploading, you'd better post this question at IIS forum for info on how to configure your backend.

I can't really use your solution because I am using IIS/ASP, but I'm giving you the points anyway for responding to my question. Thanks for the feedback.

No heyhey, your answer wasn't helpful. I am aware of the fact that HTTP supports file uploading. My main problem with that is how to allow users to select multiple files at the same time time and upload them together. If you know of some way to do this then I will open another question and give you the points. I gave girionis the points to this question because he came up with a solution that would have worked if I wasn't using IIS. Even though his solution wouldn't work for me I thought I should still give him the points because in my original question I forgot to mention that I was using IIS.
