Hi

I have a File upload on a jsp page, if I do not upload and press submit, it throws java.lang.NullPointerException

I use

boolean isMultipart = ServletFileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);
if(isMultipart)
then upload file

Can ServletFileUpload == null then redirect to another jsp page?

if(document.forms[0].fileupoload.value="")
alert("Please upload file")

I use the following code to check whether the upload file is in the right format extension.

However, once I use it and it cannot pass the variable to servlet and throw nullpointerexception.

How can I fix it?

<script language="JavaScript">
    extArray = new Array(".jpg", ".png", ".gif");
    function LimitAttach(form, file) {
    allowSubmit = false;
    if (!file) return;
    while (file.indexOf("\\") != -1)
    file = file.slice(file.indexOf("\\") + 1);
    ext = file.slice(file.indexOf(".")).toLowerCase();
    for (var i = 0; i < extArray.length; i++) {
    if (extArray[i] == ext) { allowSubmit = true; break; }
    }
    if (allowSubmit) return true;
    else
    alert("Please only upload files that end in types:  "
    + (extArray.join("  ")) + "\nPlease select a new "
    + "file to upload and submit again.");
    return false;
    }
</script>
 
OnSubmit="return LimitAttach(this.form, this.form.myimage.value)"
 
servlet:
boolean isMultipart = ServletFileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);

Open in new window
