Uploading .csv or .xlsx files in server through JSP page

Hi all,
I would like to feed data files (in .csv or .xlsx) to a Talend job. The files will be uploaded using JSP. How can I create a link between JSP and Talend files input. The upload can be either a single file or multiple files.
How can I do so?
Any suggestions?
I am quite new in Talend world, specially when it comes to JSP/Talend interaction :-)
Thanks in advance....
Here is the code for single upload:
<%@ page language="java" %>
<HEAD><TITLE>Display file upload form to the user</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY> <FORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="single_upload_page.jsp" METHOD=POST>
<center><table border="2" >
<tr><center><td colspan="2"><p align="center"><B>PROGRAM FOR UPLOADING THE FILE</B><center></td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Choose the file To Upload:</b>
<td><INPUT NAME="F1" TYPE="file"></td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2">
<p align="right"><INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Send File" ></p></td></tr>

<%@ page import="*" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.List"%>
<%@ page import="java.util.Iterator"%>
<%@ page import=""%>
String contentType = request.getContentType();
if ((contentType != null) && (contentType.indexOf("multipart/form-data") >= 0)) {
DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(request.getInputStream());
//we are taking the length of Content type data
int formDataLength = request.getContentLength();
byte dataBytes[] = new byte;
int byteRead = 0;
int totalBytesRead = 0;
//this loop converting the uploaded file into byte code
while (totalBytesRead < formDataLength) {
byteRead =, totalBytesRead,
totalBytesRead += byteRead;
String file = new String(dataBytes);
//for saving the file name
String saveFile = file.substring(file.indexOf("filename=\"") + 10);
saveFile = saveFile.substring(0, saveFile.indexOf("\n"));
saveFile = saveFile.substring(saveFile.lastIndexOf("\\")+ 1,saveFile.indexOf("\""));
int lastIndex = contentType.lastIndexOf("=");
String boundary = contentType.substring(lastIndex + 1,
int pos;
//extracting the index of file
pos = file.indexOf("filename=\"");
pos = file.indexOf("\n", pos) + 1;
pos = file.indexOf("\n", pos) + 1;
pos = file.indexOf("\n", pos) + 1;
int boundaryLocation = file.indexOf(boundary, pos) - 4;
int startPos = ((file.substring(0, pos)).getBytes()).length;
int endPos = ((file.substring(0, boundaryLocation))
FileOutputStream fileOut = new FileOutputStream(saveFile);
fileOut.write(dataBytes, startPos, (endPos - startPos));
%><Br><table border="2"><tr><td><b>You have successfully
upload the file by the name of:</b>
<% out.println(saveFile); %>

Re: Uploading .csv or .xlsx files in server through JSP page

In the job, use a tFileInputDelimited to read the csv file or tFileInputExcel to read the xlsx file.
Have a look at the topic as below to know how to call a Talend Job in JSP.

Re: Uploading .csv or .xlsx files in server through JSP page

If the problem is to upload file with Talend, try to use tFileFetch component ( POST + upload file ).
Or if you want to process the file in the jsp, you can export talend job as a jar file and then include in the classpath of the runnign jsp container... just as additional code... there are many thread in this forum regarding exporting/calling in java.
