You should use the org.apache.commons.fileupload   API for  a multipart form.
Here is an example.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/J2EE/JSP/Q_23504709.html
For your here, you could use something like  
                 
  boolean isMultipart = ServletFileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);
  if(isMultipart){
                  ServletFileUpload upload = new ServletFileUpload();
                  FileItemIterator iter = upload.getItemIterator(request);
                  FileItemStream item = null;
                  String name = "";
                  InputStream stream = null;
                  while (iter.hasNext()){
                                         item = iter.next();
                                         name = item.getFieldName();
                                         stream = item.openStream();
                    if(item.isFormField()){
                        if{"txtName".equals(name){
                                out.println("txtName is" + Streams.asString(stream) + "<br/>");
                        }
                    }
