FileUploadException

Hi,

I am using Struts to upload the file. Well, in the FormBean, I received it as FormFile which is correct. Everything works fine in my local machine. But when I tested it using SSL and Apache, it gives me the FileUploadException. This exception is intermittent and happened only if you do not specify anything in your <input type="file">.

This is the error stack trace.

org.apache.commons.fileupload.FileUploadException: Processing of multipart/form-data request failed. Read timed out
        at org.apache.commons.fileupload.FileUploadBase.parseRequest(FileUploadBase.java:429)
        at com.bea.wlw.netui.pageflow.upload.PageFlowMultipartRequestHandler.handleRequest(PageFlowMultipartRequestHandler.java:263)

And this is how I validate the form bean.

if (uploadFile != null && uploadFile.getFileSize() > 0) {
    // my business lgoic
}

For more info,

The validation is successfully executed and I do not know how this thing happened. Is this SSL or Apache problem?

Thanks

>> Processing of multipart/form-data request failed. Read timed out

Looks like just a problem which can be intermittent and where all you need to do is refresh. Like sometimes you open a web-site and it just doesn't open - what do you do? Refresh, and it opens ;-)

In this link: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=627123 it is suggested that you set the property disableUploadTimeout  to false.

I thought that was the default?

I myself am confused now. Let me check my Apache first. It may not serve the right files.

Nope,

Now it is more interesting....after modifying the JavaScript to modify the way it submits the form, it works better. Now, the problem is intermittent (sometimes only).

Any idea?

Though it does not solve the problem directly, it gives me an idea on what should I do.

Thanks mayankeagle and girionis.
