    • Dear Mike,

      Have you based your code entirely on this tutorial?
      It sounds like you are missing a configuration in your jersey application.
      You need to register the MultiPartFeature in your jersey application configuration.
      See section ‘Registering Jersey RestServices’
      Hope this helps!

  • Hi! I am using configuration in a slightly different way. I believe both are valid, do you think this is what’s causing the problem?


    • Hi Mike,

      You can configure the MultiPartFeature by extending javax.ws.rs.core.Application class and registering it by overriding the getClasses method (like I did in this application).

      Or you can configure the MultiPartFeature in your web.xml. You must add the following:


      Hope it helps !

    Hey i was able to build youre uploader using mvn clean install and it was successful but i dont understand what modification i need to make to be able to post file to the rest service everytime i upload a file it says error. Any help would be great my project is due very soon and this would be awesome to include.


    • Hello Omar, Is the error originating from the server, or the client? And can you please provide more detail about which error you’re receiving?

    Hi!, I am testing some examples with the same bad result, your code is the last one. My problem is that the event progress is triggered only one time. For example, following your code, the event is triggered at the beginning and the progress bar is filled with the 100% value, but the file is not uploaded yet. Any idea? Thanks in advance.
