This technote explains that the IBM® JavaServer™ Faces (JSF) File Upload component is not supported for Portlet application development in Rational® Application Developer for WebSphere® Software (RAD) version 6.x.
Resolving the problem
The File Upload component is not supported for Portlet development. For details of this and other JSF limitations in Portlet development please refer to the Related Information item for the Rational Application Developer Information Center.
There are two suggested workarounds that you could pursue if this functionality is needed:
- Create your own implementation, using technology for example such as Apache FileUpload
- Use a third party vendor implementation. For example, you may find some in the WebSphere Portal Solutions Catalog.
This functionality is supported in RAD v.7.x, as stated in the release notes.
