Clearly our existing image upload page is under construction.

I'm thinking of replacing the current flash based uploader widget with a java based one, which supports multi-file upload.

I found JumpLoader tonight, which is free and looks good.

Any thoughts on this?

I don't think this is a good idea. I suspect there are a lot more users with flash installed then with java installed.

Also flash is a lot easier and smaller to download and install then java.

Maybe we should be looking at alternative flash options.

The carrot with the Java option is the multi-upload, but there is no reason why a Flash based uploader can't have this as well. The guy behind our current uploader is writing a version2, which may or may not include this feature.

We also found an issue yesterday with the flash uploader and mod_security, which prevented the uploads from working via flash.

Probably a combined arms approach is best - flash / html for the masses, with a Java option available as a popup for those that want the multi-upload and image preview features?

I've seen a few flash based multi-uploaders, but it seems the nicer ones require purchasing.

It's easy enough to use javascript to add more file fields to the form once one is filled, however this doesn't overcome the problem of the php script timing out when uploading large amounts of data.

How about fyneworks.com/jquery/multiple-file-upload or even from the jQuery site... plugins.jquery.com/project/MultiFile

The javascript/jquery ones have the issue of the file upload limit - no point being able to upload multi files when there is a 1Mb or 2Mb limit on the total upload size.

Flash, Perl and Java work around this issue. Of the 3, flash is my preference because it's got the best browser support. Perl isn't so great because it requires a bit of extra installation work (and requires perl on the server).

The final interface will likely be a tab based arrangement where the user can choose between no-frills html, flash and java uploaders.

My current favourite Java uploader is jumploader

Good point, I'd never had to think about such limitations since I've always had full control over servers.

JumpLoader looks great, I haven't come across it before.

You also have JFileUpload that supports multiple file uploads. It support HTTP, HTTPS, files and folder compression, resume broken upload and more.
You can see it at:

Some demonstrations are available.
