Subject RE: [users@httpd] Uploading files to Apache Server

You are right. These are data files, PDF/TIF/DOC/XLS, etc.

Will HTTP POST be a good option for 5-10-30mb files performance wise?

Also, my organization does not allow enabling PERL/PHP on Apache. Taking it through infosec
would be a long process.

So whatever is the option, it should enable uploads via a java application.

That makes it sound like these are data files and not code. If that's the case then why not
just have your client side Java execute an HTTP POST request and put a handler script on the
server side to receive and process it?
