Over the last few months I keep finding a need for something:
A Java based uploader that can upload files without:
- Making the user have to do multiple actions per file
- Killing the webserver
- Allows for large files
- Perhaps a preview of those files.
In any case… I found one I liked online while surfing smug mug. However, it has a licensing fee, one of which I do not desire to pay, and the free version has limitations. That said, I thought it was time I dusted off my Java skills and started writing my own. There were surely plenty of tutorials on how to drag and drop, use ftp, etc. Here are a few of the ones that I used for reference:
That said, I’ve completed phase 1 of my project… I think… It’s the drag and drop portion of the test. I’ve included it below here in the blog post… Try it… drag any type of file into the box, and it will display the file name (yay!).
