I need a single page with a file upload and a text area where the contents of the file are printed there.

At the moment I have a jsp file and a servlet:

Part of index.jsp :

<form action="FileReader" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" method="POST">
<textarea name="textinputarea" rows="14" cols="130" readonly>
Some text </textarea>


<!-- Tools Selection -->
<td valign="top" align="left" height="200" width="33%">
<img class="start_img" src="file_Selections.jpg"> <br> <br>
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="100000" />
<input type="file" name="user_file" accept="text/xml">
<input type="submit" value="Validate" /> <br>

Here is the "POST" part of the servlet:

public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {

String name = request.getParameter("textinputarea");

boolean isMultipart = ServletFileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();

try {
FileItemFactory factory = new DiskFileItemFactory();
ServletFileUpload upload = new ServletFileUpload(factory);
Iterator<FileItem> iterator = upload.parseRequest(request).iterator();
File uploadedFile = null;
String dirPath="C:\\fileuploads";
while (iterator.hasNext()) {

FileItem item = iterator.next();
if (!item.isFormField()) {

String fileNameWithExt = item.getName();

File filePath = new File(dirPath);

if (!filePath.exists()) {

uploadedFile = new File(dirPath + "/" + fileNameWithExt);
else {
String otherFieldName = item.getFieldName();
String otherFieldValue = item.getString();}}

FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream(uploadedFile);
DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(fstream);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
String strLine = null;

out.println("<title>Processing get requests with data</title>");

// body section of document
while ((strLine = br.readLine()) != null) {

// Print the content on the console
out.println(strLine + "</br>");

// end of html document

} catch (Exception e) {
response.sendError(HttpServletResponse.SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR, e.toString());

This is actually prints the content of file in a new page. I tried to give the same name of text area and the "String name = request.getParameter("textinputarea"); "..

Thanks for your time!
