This is a small problem, but it's been bugging me

I've used the com.oreilly.servlet.MultipartRequest to upload PDF files. I can open the files fine through explorer (or any other way). The problem is, when the files I try to open the uploaded file through Dreamweaver MX, it complains: "Can't find an editor for the file extension." All other pdf's when opened through dreamweaver spawn Acrobat and open the file...

Thanks for the help.

-I can open them properly both through explorer and the web.
-Yes, dreamweaver should spawn the Acrobat reader.

The only reason I am concerned is that I'm wondering if the file or it's (mime/type) had been corrupted in the upload.

>> -I can open them properly both through explorer and the web.
then, what make you think it is corrupted?

1. as long as you can open the file from uploaded directory, it is uploaded correctly.
2. the mime/type is never uploaded with your file. only file content is uploaded.
