Spring MVC – AngularJS – File Upload – org.apache.commons.fileupload.FileUploadException

I have a Java Spring MVC Web application as server. And AngularJS based application as client.

In AngularJS, I have to upload a file and send to server.

Here is my html

<form ng-submit="uploadFile()" class="form-horizontal" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="file" ng-model="document.fileInput" id="file" onchange="angular.element(this).scope().setTitle(this)" />
<input type="text" class="col-sm-4" ng-model="document.title" id="title" />
<button class="btn btn-primary" type="submit">
Submit
</button>
</form>

Here is my UploadController.js

'use strict';
var mainApp=angular.module('mainApp', ['ngCookies']);
mainApp.controller('FileUploadController', function($scope, $http) {
$scope.document = {};
$scope.setTitle = function(fileInput) {
var file=fileInput.value;
var filename = file.replace(/^.*[\\\/]/, '');
var title = filename.substr(0, filename.lastIndexOf('.'));
$("#title").val(title);
$("#title").focus();
$scope.document.title=title;
};
$scope.uploadFile=function(){
var formData=new FormData();
formData.append("file",file.files[0]);
$http({
method: 'POST',
url: '/serverApp/rest/newDocument',
headers: { 'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'},
data: formData
})
.success(function(data, status) {
alert("Success ... " + status);
})
.error(function(data, status) {
alert("Error ... " + status);
});
};
});

It is going to the server. Here is my DocumentUploadController.java

@Controller
public class DocumentUploadController {
@RequestMapping(value="/newDocument", headers = "'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'", method = RequestMethod.POST)
public void UploadFile(MultipartHttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) {
Iterator<String> itr=request.getFileNames();
MultipartFile file=request.getFile(itr.next());
String fileName=file.getOriginalFilename();
System.out.println(fileName);
}
}

When I run this I get the following exception

org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartException: Could not parse multipart servlet request; nested exception is org.apache.commons.fileupload.FileUploadException: the request was rejected because no multipart boundary was found] with root cause

In my applicationContext.xml, I have mentioned

<bean id="multipartResolver"
class="org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartResolver">
<property name="maxUploadSize" value="100000" />
</bean>

I am using

spring - 3.2.1.RELAESE
commons-fileupload - 1.2.2
commons-io - 2.4

How to solve this?

It would be great if anyone tel me how to send file and other formdata from angularJS and get it in server.

UPDATE 1

@Michael : I can see this only in the console, when I click submit.

POST http://localhost:9000/serverApp/rest/newDocument 500 (Internal Server Error) angular.js:9499
(anonymous function) angular.js:9499
sendReq angular.js:9333
$http angular.js:9124
$scope.uploadFile invoice.js:113
(anonymous function) angular.js:6541
(anonymous function) angular.js:13256
Scope.$eval angular.js:8218
Scope.$apply angular.js:8298
(anonymous function) angular.js:13255
jQuery.event.dispatch jquery.js:3074
elemData.handle

My server is running in other port 8080. I am uisng yeoman,grunt and bower. So thin gruntfile.js I have mentioned the server port. So it goes to server and running that and throws the exception

UPDATE 2

The boundary is not setting

I faced the same issue and encountered the same issue even after updating the transformRequest. ‘Some how, the header boundary doesn’t seem to have set correctly.

Following http://uncorkedstudios.com/blog/multipartformdata-file-upload-with-angularjs, the problem is resolved. Extract from the location….

By setting ‘Content-Type’: undefined, the browser sets the Content-Type to multipart/form-data for us and fills in the correct boundary. Manually setting ‘Content-Type’: multipart/form-data will fail to fill in the boundary parameter of the request.

Not sure if this helps any one but perhaps makes it easy for people looking at this post… At least, it makes it less difficult.
