hi

i am trying to upload a Zip file from a client program through a Servlet. I am able to upload but the files are correpted. I checked the size of the uploaded file. its same as the orginal file.. i dont know what's the problem..  following is the code in my servlet that reads the file and saves

       BufferedReader buffRead = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(InStream));
       DataOutputStream dos = new DataOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(sFileName));
       int i;
       while ((i = buffRead.read())!=-1)
       {   dos.write(i);
       }        
       buffRead.close();
       dos.close();

Any suggessions pls.. and one more thing if I try this for text files then its uploading fine...

thanks in advance

Don't read it with a Reader

Readers are for text files :-/

Change "BufferedReader" to "BufferedInputStream", like:

       BufferedInputStream buffRead = new BufferedInputStream( InStream );

(and make sure you close them in a finally block)
