Postlet :: Multiple file upload applet / News: Recent posts

New Features

It has been a long while (just over a year), so it's about time for a new release of Postlet. I've been provided with an excellent patch by Gerard Boor (http://www.debuginc.com) which enables Postlet to split files before uploading, allowing much larger files to be uploaded. He's also cleaned up some of my untidy code, ensuring that Postlet should run perfectly.

The full release will be available soon, but for those of you who would like it right now, you can download the SVN version from the Postlet website (http://postlet.com/svn/postlet.jar )

Apologies for lack of updates

Apologies for the lack of updates, but I've been very busy recently with a relocation to London and a new job. I hope to get back on track with Postlet as soon as possible.

Migration to SVN

Postlet will now be using SVN for development work. This should not affect the end user, unless building from source.

The current source is available via:

svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/postlet/trunk/Postlet postlet

For users used to using a GUI, I'd recommend tortoiseSVN (http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/) on windows, and kdeSVN or eSVN on Linux.

0.3 Release

The third and possibly final pre-release version of Postlet has been released. This fixes a major bug with the upload process (which now uses sockets directly rather than Java's own interface). Again, the release contains a script for the uploading of files to a PHP enabled webserver. If anyone is using alternate webservers with Postlet, could you please send me a copy of your script to include with the relase.... read more

Sockets

I am currently working on a release of Postlet which uses sockets rather than java's own HTTP layer. The reasoning for this is that the java implementation caches the whole message (including all of a file to post) until it has it all ready to send, and then sends it. This means that for a large file, the whole file is read into memory, rather than being read into memory in small chunks and then sent to the server. I have a working version which I will release very soon (this is not available on CVS yet due to limited access, but should be soon).... read more
