    Progressbar in fileupload

    Bharath G Newbie


      I am using Richfaces 3.3.1 GA under Glassfish v2.
      I am using the same example as provided in the demo for the fileupload component. I get to have everything working, apart from the following two things.
      1. Progressbar does not move.
      2. Allowflash = true returns a transfer error and not file is uploaded.

      Has anyone experienced a similar kind of problem or does any one know a solution?

              could anyone help me out on this issue? Do I have to include any other libraries other than the 3 richfaces jar files for the fileupload progressbar to work?

                the code seems ok.. If there are any exceptions in server log?

                  No. There are no exceptions generated.

                    Unfortunately I have not reproduced your problem.
                    Could you please provide us a simple example - war file or eclipse project.
                    Send it to me by email or share on any file sharing service, e.g. sendspace.com

                      I have uploaded the sample project to,


                      It is a netbeans project.

                        Strangely, but problem is still not reproducible for me even with provided project:

                        - for allowFlash=false progress bar moves (may be it is not visible on little files because motion is not smoothly)

                        - for allowFlash=true no transfer errors occur. Do you use HTTPS protocol? If so, issue already exists - https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/RF-5624

                          You are right. The allowFlash doesnt work on HTTPS protocol. The progressbar works now!! We had another filter in our application which somehow seemed to block the progress data. Now that we have re-arranged the filter chain, it works perfectly.

                          I have another question, how can I clear the temp files once the upload is finished (clearTempFiles option is true)?

                          Is the memory cleared when the clearTempFiles option is false, once the upload is finished?

                            Hi Bharath,

                            Delete files using standard method.

                            Yes, memory is cleared.

                              I cannot find a clearTempFiles-Property in rich:fileUpload RF 3.3.1.

                              Does it exist?

                              I have used the file.delete()-Method.

                              Where can I set the clearTempFiles-Property?

                                nimo stephan Master

                                Should I set "clearTempFiles"-Property in web.xml?


                                or should I delete the temp-file using file.delete():

                                public void fileUpload(UploadEvent event) throws Exception{

                                where lies the difference?

                                  I guess, the question was about createTempFiles property, not clearTempFiles.

                                    @bharathg Can you explain what you did in terms of changing the order of the filter chain?

                                    I have a similar situation with the progress bar and I would like to see if your solution would apply to me.
