Spring MVC Multiple File Upload example

In this simple tutorial we will see how to implement multiple file upload in a Spring 3 MVC based application.

The requirement is simple. We have a form which displays file input component. User selects a file and upload it. Also its possible to add more file input components using Add button. Once the files are selected and uploaded, the file names are displayed on success page.

1. Maven Dependencies / Required JAR files

If you using Maven in your project for dependency management, you’ll need to add dependencies for Apache Common File upload and Apache Common IO libraries. The spring’s CommonsMultipartResolver class internal uses these library to handle uploaded content.
Add following dependencies in your maven based project to add File upload feature.

	<dependencies>
		<!-- Spring 3 MVC  -->
		<dependency>
			<groupId>org.springframework</groupId>
			<artifactId>spring-webmvc</artifactId>
			<version>3.1.2.RELEASE</version>
		</dependency>
		<!-- Apache Commons file upload  -->
		<dependency>
			<groupId>commons-fileupload</groupId>
			<artifactId>commons-fileupload</artifactId>
			<version>1.2.2</version>
		</dependency>
		<!-- Apache Commons IO -->
		<dependency>
			<groupId>org.apache.commons</groupId>
			<artifactId>commons-io</artifactId>
			<version>1.3.2</version>
		</dependency>
		<!-- JSTL for c: tag -->
		<dependency>
			<groupId>jstl</groupId>
			<artifactId>jstl</artifactId>
			<version>1.2</version>
		</dependency>
	</dependencies>

If you have a simple web application, add following JAR files in WEB-INF/lib folder. You can download all these JARs with source code at the end of this tutorial.

2. Model – Form Object

Create a Java bean which acts as Model/Form object for our Spring application. This bean contains a List of org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartFile objects. Spring framework provides a useful class MultipartFile which can be used to fetch the file content of uploaded file. Apart from its content, the MultipartFile object also gives you other useful information such as filename, file size etc.

FileUploadForm.java

package net.viralpatel.spring3.form;

import java.util.List;

import org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartFile;

public class FileUploadForm {

	private List<MultipartFile> files;
	
	//Getter and setter methods
}

3. Controller – Spring Controller

Create a Spring 3 MVC based controller which handles file upload. There are two methods in this controller:

  1. displayForm – Is a used to show input form to user. It simply forwards to the page file_upload_form.jsp
  2. save – Fetches the form using @ModelAttribute annotation and get the File content from it. It creates a list of filenames of files being uploaded and pass this list to success page.

FileUploadController.java

package net.viralpatel.spring3.controller;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

import net.viralpatel.spring3.form.FileUploadForm;

import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.ui.Model;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.ModelAttribute;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMethod;
import org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartFile;

@Controller
public class FileUploadController {
	
	@RequestMapping(value = "/show", method = RequestMethod.GET)
	public String displayForm() {
		return "file_upload_form";
	}
	
	@RequestMapping(value = "/save", method = RequestMethod.POST)
	public String save(
			@ModelAttribute("uploadForm") FileUploadForm uploadForm,
					Model map) {
		
		List<MultipartFile> files = uploadForm.getFiles();

		List<String> fileNames = new ArrayList<String>();
		
		if(null != files && files.size() > 0) {
			for (MultipartFile multipartFile : files) {

				String fileName = multipartFile.getOriginalFilename();
				fileNames.add(fileName);
				//Handle file content - multipartFile.getInputStream()

			}
		}
		
		map.addAttribute("files", fileNames);
		return "file_upload_success";
	}
}

4. View – JSP views

Now create the view pages for this application. We will need two JSPs, one to display file upload form and another to show result on successful upload.

The file_upload_form.jsp displays a form with file input. Apart from this we have added small jquery snippet onclick of Add button. This will add a new file input component at the end of form. This allows user to upload as many files as they want (subjected to file size limit ofcourse).

Note that we have set enctype=”multipart/form-data” attribute of our <form> tag.

file_upload_form.jsp

<%@taglib uri="http://www.springframework.org/tags/form" prefix="form"%>
<html>
<head>
	<title>Spring MVC Multiple File Upload</title>
<script 
src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function() {
	//add more file components if Add is clicked
	$('#addFile').click(function() {
		var fileIndex = $('#fileTable tr').children().length - 1;
		$('#fileTable').append(
				'<tr><td>'+
				'	<input type="file" name="files['+ fileIndex +']" />'+
				'</td></tr>');
	});
	
});
</script>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Spring Multiple File Upload example</h1>

<form:form method="post" action="save.html" 
		modelAttribute="uploadForm" enctype="multipart/form-data">

	<p>Select files to upload. Press Add button to add more file inputs.</p>

	<input id="addFile" type="button" value="Add File" />
	<table id="fileTable">
		<tr>
			<td><input name="files[0]" type="file" /></td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td><input name="files[1]" type="file" /></td>
		</tr>
	</table>
	<br/><input type="submit" value="Upload" />
</form:form>
</body>
</html>

Note that we defined the file input name as files[0], files[1] etc. This will map the submitted files to the List object correctly.

I would suggest you to go through this tutorial to understand how Spring maps multiple entries from form to bean: Multiple Row Form Submit using List of Beans

Second view page is to display filename of uploaded file. It simply loops through filename list and display the names.

file_upload_success.jsp

<%@taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" prefix="c"%>
<html>
<head>
	<title>Spring MVC Multiple File Upload</title>
</head>
<body>
	<h1>Spring Multiple File Upload example</h1>
	<p>Following files are uploaded successfully.</p>
	<ol>
		<c:forEach items="${files}" var="file">
			<li>${file}</li>
		</c:forEach>
	</ol>
</body>
</html>

5. Spring Configuration

In Spring configuration (spring-servlet.xml) we define several important configurations. Note how we defined bean multipartResolver. This will make sure Spring handles the file upload correctly using CommonsMultipartResolver class.

spring-servlet.xml

<?xml  version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xmlns:context="http://www.springframework.org/schema/context"
	xmlns:mvc="http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans.xsd http://www.springframework.org/schema/context http://www.springframework.org/schema/context/spring-context.xsd http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc/spring-mvc.xsd">

	<context:annotation-config />
	<context:component-scan base-package="net.viralpatel.spring3.controller"/>
 
 <bean id="multipartResolver"
  class="org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartResolver"/>

  <bean id="jspViewResolver"
	class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver">
		<property name="viewClass"
			value="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.JstlView" />
		<property name="prefix" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/" />
		<property name="suffix" value=".jsp" />
  </bean>
</beans>

6. Output

Execute the project in Eclipse. Open following URL in browser to see file upload form.

URL: http://localhost:8080/Spring3MVC_Multiple_File_Upload_example/show.html

spring-mvc-multiple-file-upload-demo

Select files through file dialog and press Upload button to upload. Following page will displayed with list of files being uploaded.

spring-mvc-multi-file-upload-success

We have added a small Javascript snippet for Add button. This will add more file upload components to the page. Use this if you want to upload more files.

    Hi Viral! A great tutorial! How do we restrict the file types being uploaded. Use case being i want the user to upload only .pdf file or .xls files.

    • Greg says:

      You can use a validator, first register your validator

      	@InitBinder("uploadItem")
      	void initBinder(WebDataBinder binder) {
      		binder.setValidator(new UploadValidator ());
      	}
      	
      

      Then you apply that validator to uploaded file

      
          public String uploadPluginAction(@Valid @ModelAttribute("uploadItem") FileUploadBean uploadItem, BindingResult result, ModelMap modelMap,
                  HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
          {
              logger.trace("Upload  Handler");
              // Check for validation error
              if (result.hasErrors())
              {
      
                  return "/add";

      		// This related to bug  when on Vista and using Firefox content type is 'application/octet-stream'		  
      		// Instead  of one of the allowed ones
      		if("application/octet-stream".equalsIgnoreCase(incomingContentType)){

      			for(String extendsion : ACCEPTED_EXTENSIONS){
      				if(extendsion.equalsIgnoreCase(incomingExtension)){

      					break;
      				}			
      			}
      		}
      		if(!acceptableContentType){
      			errors.reject("error.upload.contenttype", "Please upload a file with one of the following file types; .doc, .docx, .txt, .pdf, .rtf .");
      		}
      	}
      }
      
      

      I hope this helps

        Hi Creg,

        In your reply said :
        First register your validator, then apply, can you please show us where to register and where to apply, and where to create the validator, do we need a configuration somewhere ?

        Thanks

    Hello there, nice tutorial. Just one warn, when I run your example after download it from here and I get the following exception stacktrace:

    org.springframework.web.util.NestedServletException: Request processing failed; nested exception is org.springframework.validation.BindException: org.springframework.validation.BeanPropertyBindingResult: 1 errors
    Field error in object 'uploadForm' on field 'files[0]': rejected value [[org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartFile@21e4d4, org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartFile@1363716]]; codes [typeMismatch.uploadForm.files[0],typeMismatch.uploadForm.files,typeMismatch.files[0],typeMismatch.files,typeMismatch]; arguments [org.springframework.context.support.DefaultMessageSourceResolvable: codes [uploadForm.files[0],files[0]]; arguments []; default message [files[0]]]; default message [Failed to convert property value of type 'java.util.LinkedList' to required type 'org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartFile' for property 'files[0]'; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot convert value of type [java.util.LinkedList] to required type [org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartFile] for property 'files[0]': no matching editors or conversion strategy found]
    

    You shoul change the line of code:

    var fileIndex = $('#fileTable tr').children().length - 1;
    

    for this one:

    var fileIndex = $('#fileTable tr').children().length;
    

    doing so, it wont duplicate the same last index when select the “Add File” button

    Regards!

  10. Sudipto Saha says:

    I was not sure where the files were uploaded…
    So,I just got your code a little modified with d help of some other example:
    And here is the full running code:
    1.Just Create D:\Test\Upload directory structure or whatever.
    2.Copy this code to FileUploadController.java

    package net.viralpatel.spring3.controller;
    
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.util.ArrayList;
    import java.util.List;
    
    import net.viralpatel.spring3.form.FileUploadForm;
    
    import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
    import org.springframework.ui.Model;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.ModelAttribute;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMethod;
    import org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartFile;
    
    @Controller
    public class FileUploadController {
    	private String saveDirectory = "D:/Test/Upload/"; //Here I Added
    	
    	@RequestMapping(value = "/show", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    	public String displayForm() {
    		return "file_upload_form";
    	}
    	
    	@RequestMapping(value = "/save", method = RequestMethod.POST)
    	public String save(
    			@ModelAttribute("uploadForm") FileUploadForm uploadForm,
    					Model map) throws IllegalStateException, IOException {
    		
    		List<MultipartFile> files = uploadForm.getFiles();
    
    		List<String> fileNames = new ArrayList<String>();
    		
    		if(null != files && files.size() > 0) {
    			for (MultipartFile multipartFile : files) {
    
    				String fileName = multipartFile.getOriginalFilename();
    				fileNames.add(fileName);
    				//Handle file content - multipartFile.getInputStream()
    				multipartFile.transferTo(new File(saveDirectory + multipartFile.getOriginalFilename()));   //Here I Added
    			}
    		}
    		
    		map.addAttribute("files", fileNames);
    		return "file_upload_success";
    	}
    }
    
    
    • SATHYA says:

      when I copied your updated controller, the file is getting uploaded into the location. But, I’m getting this error. Please clarify.

      java.io.IOException: Destination file [C:\Temp\Upload] already exists and could not be deleted
      org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartFile.transferTo(CommonsMultipartFile.java:130)

      • SATHYA says:

        I got the solution for the above exception. I just added a condition like this and added the files in the last step. Please see the code below:

         if(null != files && files.size() > 0) {
                    for (MultipartFile multipartFile : files) {
         
                        String fileName = multipartFile.getOriginalFilename();
                        if(!"".equalsIgnoreCase(fileName)){
                        //Handle file content - multipartFile.getInputStream()
                        multipartFile.transferTo(new File(saveDirectory + fileName));   //Here I Added
                        fileNames.add(fileName);
                        }

    I have repository class where I want to store the image that is coming from MultipartFile to webapp/resources/images directory before adding the product details to the repository ?

     
        @Override
    	public void addProduct(Product product) {
            Resource resource = resourceLoader.getResource("file:webapp/resources/images");
            
    		 MultipartFile proudctImage = product.getProudctImage();
    		 
    		 try {
    			proudctImage.transferTo(new File(resource.getFile()+proudctImage.getOriginalFilename()));
    		} catch (IOException e) {
    			throw new RuntimeException(e);
    		}
    		listOfProducts.add(product);
    	}
    

    my repository class is ResourceLoaderAware. I am getting fileNotFoundException, “imagesDesert.jpg” is the image I am trying to upload
