Read wave file data from post data

Hello Experts,

I'm using TIdHttp from Indy (version 8) in C++ Builder to post some parameters AND wave file data to test.jsp.  The parameters and the wave file data are separated by \r\n.

So in C++ I make a string called sRequestData that looks like this:
"param1=blabla&param2=blabla&\r\n" + wave file data.

When I debug in C++ Builder I can only see something like "RIFFèO\x04" for the wave file data but the string has actually a much larger length (real size of the file).

On the jsp page I get the parameters without a problem, but the wave file data seems only 10 bytes long (RIFFèO\x04...).

CAN ANYONE HELP ME TELL A WAY TO SEND WAVE FILE DATA USING A HTTP POST AND WRITING THE DATA TO A WAVE FILE ON THE SERVER?

(please bear in mind that I'm also sending other params with the same post)

This is my JSP code:

                String sParameters = "";
      String sWaveFileData = "";
      int i;
      int iCounter;

      ServletInputStream sis = request.getInputStream();
       BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader( new InputStreamReader( sis));
      
      ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
      // read parameter bytes
      ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

      sParameters = in.readLine();

      byte[] bytes = sParameters.getBytes();

      i = bytes.length;
      out.println( "# parameter bytes: " + i);

      out.println( "Parameter bytes:" );
      
      for ( i = 0; i<bytes.length; i++)
      {
            out.print( bytes[i]);
      }

      ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
      // read wave file data
      ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

      iCounter = 0;

      for ( i = 0; i != -1; )
      {
            i = in.read();
            sWaveFileData += new Integer( i).toString();
            iCounter++;
      }

      out.println( sWaveFileData);
      out.println( "# wave file bytes: " + iCounter); //only 10!!!

      ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
      //write wave file data to file
      ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

      FileWriter fw = new FileWriter( "c:/vmtx.wav");
      BufferedWriter bw = new BufferedWriter( fw);
      bw.write( sWaveFileData);            
      bw.close();

Use the MultipartRequest class written by Jason Hunter under servlets.com.  Go here to download the jar: http://www.servlets.com/cos/cos-05Nov2002.zip

Put cos.jar in your classpath.  Then write a servlet that accepts the request as a MultipartRequest object and you will be able to pull out the uploaded files... There is lots of documentation on how to use these classes on the internet including here:  http://www.servlets.com/cos/index.html

This is exactly why I'm telling you not to use jspsmartupload.  What a pain in the butt.  I always thought it was a pain until I found the one I was telling you about above.  For MultipartRequest, you need only put "cos.jar" on the classpath.  Then you can handle the upload so easily:

1) Download the zip and put "cos.jar" on classpath

2) Create an HTML form with upload button in a file called "form.html":

<form action="test.jsp" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type=file name=testfile>
<input type=submit>
</form>

3) Create an empty directory in "c:/upload"

4) Make a file called "test.jsp", and put:

<%@ page import="com.oreilly.servlet.*" %>
<%
 MultipartRequest mp = new MultipartRequest(request, "c:/upload");
 out.println("DONE");
%>

5) The file should have been uploaded.  You can find more command on what you cando with the MultipartRequest here: http://www.servlets.com/cos/javadoc/com/oreilly/servlet/MultipartRequest.html
