I strongly suspect you might have missed enctype on your form .

Code: Select all

<h:form  enctype="multipart/form-data"><p:fileUpload value="#{beanController.file}" mode="simple"/> </h:form>

i also tried enctype="multipart/form-data" in form tag but no effect..
There is a mysterious thing that following code is running perfect with fileUpload advance mode

public void handleFileUpload(FileUploadEvent event) {
file = event.getFile();

But when i use fileUpload simple mode with value = "#{beanController.file}" then file setter is not taking its value ..

Hi All,

In the PrimeUI forum, you won't get much help about PrimeFaces questions. Use the dedicated forum.

PrimeFaces version 3.5, Tomcat 7, Mojarra 2.1.13
PrimeFaces version 4.0, Glassfish 4.0
PrimeFaces version 5.0, WLS 12.1.2
If you haven't read the forum rules read them now : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1194
