this is a very interesting issue that has been bugging me for the past couple 
of days and I'm running out of ideas here.
Hopefully one of you guys has had a similar issue before and can help.

For starters, here is my form code:

<form action="AttachDoc" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
 <input type="hidden" name="question" id="question" value="<%= question.getId() 
%>" />
 <p class="right">
   <input type="file" id="document" name="document" />
   <input type="submit" value="Add Document" />

and here is the servlet that handles the upload:

protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) 
throws ServletException, IOException 
      int id                = -1;
      int delete            = -1;
      String fName          = null;
      InputStream fInStream = null;
      String contentType    = null;
      List items            = null;
      Iterator iter;
      out                   = response.getWriter();
      if( ServletFileUpload.isMultipartContent(request) )
        DiskFileItemFactory dfiFactory = new DiskFileItemFactory();             
        ServletFileUpload upload       = new ServletFileUpload( dfiFactory );
          items = upload.parseRequest( request );
          iter = items.iterator();
          while( iter.hasNext() )
            FileItem fItem = (FileItem)iter.next();
            if( fItem.isFormField() )
              String name = fItem.getFieldName();
              if( name.equals( "question" ) )
                id = Integer.parseInt( fItem.getString() );
            }//if( fItem.isFormField() )
              fName = fItem.getName();
              contentType = fItem.getContentType();
              //boolean isInMemory = fItem.isInMemory();
              //long sizeInBytes = fItem.getSize();
              fInStream = fItem.getInputStream();
          }//while( iter.hasNext() )
        catch( FileUploadException fue )
          fue.printStackTrace( out );
        logger.info( "Request is not Multipart" );
        if( request.getParameter( "question" ) == null )
          out.print( "Error: getting question ID." );
        id = Integer.parseInt( request.getParameter( "question" ) );
        delete = request.getParameter( "delete" ) == null ? -1 : 
Integer.parseInt( request.getParameter( "delete" ) );
      Question question = DfaqQuestions.getByID( id );
      if( question == null )
        out.print( "Error: Can't get question." );
 ...Rest left out for brevity...

As you can see, the Form calls the servlet directly, no framework whatsoever is 
involved, just a couple of jsps and servlets.
When I use Firefox ( everything works great. With IE however, (IE 6) 
the request is completely empty. I also tried to 
print out the request data to system.out and it is true: With FF there is data 
(whole pdf file, form field etc.) , with IE the request 
contains absolutely _nothing_!

While I'm sure that this has nothing to do with the library itself, I'm just 
hoping that one of you has seen this before.

thanks much in advance,
