    Limit the size of file being uploaded using rich:fileUpload

    Prakash Bande Newbie

      Hello,

      I am using rich:fileUpload. However, I do not want user's to upload a large file. Basically by the time I get the UploadItem the file is already uploaded. I want that the file should just not upload at all.
      I am having issues like out of memory and such when the file is too large.

      Regards,

      Prakash

          Hi Prakash,

            Thanks for the response. I already have maxRequestSize set, but still larger files are getting uploaded. However, I did not try any javascriping, I will give it a try. I am planning the following approach, let me know if this is right:
            onadd="check the entries.size_error"

            Regards,

              Hi Prakash,

              JS won't work - file size is not known to it. We need to find out why maxRequestSize doesn't work for you, please post web.xml.

                • 5. Re: Limit the size of file being uploaded using rich:fileUpl
                  Prakash Bande Newbie

                  Hello,

                  A closer examination of my web.xml relieved that I had two

                  <filter-class>org.ajax4jsf.Filter</filter-class>
                  one of them has the maxRequestSize defined and other did not. Putting it in both places solved the problem.

                  Thanks a lot for help and compelling me to closely look at it. Now onsizeerror client side script is getting called.

                  One more question (it may be off-topic, but experience of this group might help). The maxRequestSize is an Integer, limiting it to ~2GB. Is there a way I can upload larger files ideal would be ~4 GB.

                  Regards,

                  Prakash

                    Hi,

                    The problem is not yet over, I wish it would have. Actually, RF first starts uploading the file and realizes that the file is too big only after it has uploaded the maxRequestSize. Can't it check it at the client side and immediately show the file size restricted message?

                    Regards,

                    Prakash
