    Uploading & Download a PDF from a Web Server using JSP or Servlet

    I am looking for varies ways to upload a PDF file to a Linux Web Server using jsp or Servlets and then later download the file from the server.
    My options are:

    1. Upload the file to a Server (to a specific path or folder) and Store a URL to the file in the MySQL database and it can be downloaded easliy.

    Unfortunately this method did not work for me and It failed. I used the method from an API from the site javazoom.net (UploadBean). The problem was that it did not upload the file to the correct PATH I wanted and Loaded to a dir on the Tomcat Server.

    My second option is:
    1. Upload the file to a Database as Binary and Then Download it, The problem is that I dont how to do it and even If I can upload the file in Binary form into the Database I want to download the file Back into its Original PDF Form.

    What I am mostly looking for is Sample Code or link to good Thread from anysite that will solve my problems using the Above options or any other efficient Option.

    Thanks in advance

    Try searching for "Jakarta Commons FileUpload".
