Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: other ways to upload a file besides the html file upload control

  1. Hi,

    I wanted to know if there is a way to upload a file, without using the html file upload control.
  2. Write an applet.

    Use Flash.

    Write a Java client.

    If you want to use a pure, HTML-only web app, though, the file upload form element is pretty much your only option.
