    <rich:fileUpload> Fails on Glassfish 4

    Sam Sam Newbie

      I'm relatively new to Java EE, Glassfish 4 and Richfaces 4.3.1 and whilst I have managed to resolve many problems with the first two of these technologies Richfaces has tripped me up right from the very start. I am trying to do a simple file upload web page using the <rich:fileupload> tag but when I click the upload button I get an exception thrown:


      SEVERE:   Exception parsing multipart request: Request prolog cannot be read
      org.richfaces.exception.FileUploadException: Exception parsing multipart request: Request prolog cannot be read
          at org.richfaces.request.MultipartRequestParser.parse(MultipartRequestParser.java:156)



      Now I have seen this question raised in several places but so far they seem only to refer to JBoss server and a fix for it but I am not using that. For example here.


      This is my relevant code which fails:



      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <web-app version="3.1" xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_3_1.xsd">
              <servlet-name>Upload Servelet</servlet-name>
              <servlet-name>Upload Servelet</servlet-name>




      And finally UploadBean.java

      package com.test.richfacestesting;
      import javax.ejb.Stateless;
      import javax.faces.bean.RequestScoped;
      import javax.inject.Named;
      import org.richfaces.event.FileUploadEvent;
      import org.richfaces.event.FileUploadListener;
      public class UploadBean implements FileUploadListener{
          public void processFileUpload(FileUploadEvent fue) {
              throw new UnsupportedOperationException("Not supported yet."); //To change body of generated methods, choose Tools | Templates.


      Could enyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or how to resolve this? It appears to have been a problem in Glassfish 3 as well.
