>                 URL:
>             Project: Struts 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Dispatch Filter
>    Affects Versions: 2.5.17
>            Reporter: Tamás Faragó
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 2.5.21, 2.6
> 2.5.11 added more validation on whether to accept file uploads. Previously there was
only a check if the HTTP header contained "multipart/form-data", now there is the following
regex in Dispatcher::isMultipartRequest.
> {quote}public static final String MULTIPART_FORM_DATA_REGEX = "^multipart/form-data(;
> This is too restrictive, apache http client for example adds a white space between the
semicolon and "charset" and thus all file uploads are failing unless this regex is overwritten
in the config.
