Perhaps this collides with icefaces fileupload component. Why not try to use icefaces fileupload component instead if you have this issue?
thanks for the reply. Do you have any example usage of ice:fileupload component with seam?
Select Projects tab, then Jboss Seam, then seam-Showcase-1.6.0.zip
There is an example in there of using ice:fileUpload.
For further info or questions, please try the icefaces/jboss-seam integration forum at
