To post the file, it HAS to be a multipart (which is why you need ENCTYPE), but when it is multipart, you have to do some extra work to extract the parameters out (as the parameters are stored in a Part in the request, not just in the request)

You are probably better off using something like:

http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/fileupload/

which is a library to handle just this type of thing :-)
