File Upload - Larger File size - Stream Ended UnExpectedly


I am developing an application which has the option to upload files, I am using Tomcat 6 it is working fine when the files size is small, if it is larger files it is giving Exception "Stream Ended UnExpectedly"

I googled for this there are posts saying to increase the socket time out for the tomcat. If it is can you please suggest me how to do that

Hi You have to modifythe server.xml:

make sure the connector tag to have connectionTimeout="20000" and disableUploadTimeout="true"


This flag allows the servlet container to use a different, longer connection timeout while a servlet is being executed, which in the end allows either the servlet a longer amount of time to complete its execution, or a longer timeout during data upload. If not specified, this attribute is set to "true".
