    Default File not posting using MultipartRequestEntity

    This is my first time using a multipart form to post data to an HTML form post. I am not sure if I am missing something, but I get no errors and the script completes as far as I can tell, but no data is added to the server the file is submitted to. Am I missing something from the code below
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
        try {
            File f = new File("C://xxxxx/test.txt");
            PostMethod postMessage = new PostMethod("xxxxxxx");
            Part[] parts = {
                    new FilePart(f.getName(), f)
            postMessage.setRequestEntity(new MultipartRequestEntity(parts, postMessage.getParams()));
            HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
        } catch (HttpException e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block
        } catch (IOException e) {
            //  TODO Auto-generated catch block

    Default Re: File not posting using MultipartRequestEntity

    Your code refers to classes not part of J2SE...I'd recommend posting an SSCCE (with the imports, links to libraries used, etc...). Just in case you are unsure of how to use the libraries you use, I'd recommend consulting their API's and documentation.
