You can use the MultipartRequest class written by Jason Hunter. Download the jar at http://www.servlets.com/cos/cos-05Nov2002.zip. Extract it and you'll get a filename cosjar.

There is lots of documentation on how to use these classes here:  
http://www.servlets.com/cos/index.html

Put cos.jar in your <application>\WEB-INF\lib\

1) Create an HTML form with upload button. Name it "upload.html":

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

2) Create another file called "uploadResult.jsp". Inside the file, put :

<%@ page import="com.oreilly.servlet.*" %>
<%
       MultipartRequest(request, "/home/screen/uploads/",10*1000000);
       out.write("Upload Successful");
%>

3) Before u run, create a directory called uploads. As for my case, screen is my login name and I created a directory called uploads under screen. 10*1000000 is where I limit my upload filesize to 10 mb only.

4) Run it and the file should be uploaded into the directory. This work under my UNIX box!

GOOD LUCK!
