Woodstock File Upload Example

Here is another example from my code proof of concept archives.

As many of you may know, I was a big proponent of using Project Woodstock (Visual JSF). I still believe that Visual JSF and NetBeans were a great combination. In this project, you will see a couple of example applications for doing file uploads. The project was built using NetBeans 6.7.1 with the Visual JSF libraries and runtime installed.

Using the older NetBeans IDE will allow you to see Visual JSF and why it was cool in addition to getting the correct libraries installed.
Visual JSF was the "killer" framework that got me interested in JSF. It is a JSF 1.2 based framework. If you have need for nice looking components and a really easy framework + IDE combination, it is a good choice.

The code for the project can be found here: WoodstockFileUploadExample

Here is the download page visually in the IDE.



The code is really simple to create and use via NetBeans enjoy. This code will work on Java EE5, EE6, and EE7.
