Default MultipartRequest File Upload

I'm trying for ages to get a working fileupload system with a variable name. I've searched the entire web for a nice (not too difficult) example but there doesn't seems to be one. I've been trying to get a working one and im this far atm. I thought that it should work but i keep getting a weird error. Weird, coz to me its standing there correct. Could anyone tell me what is wrong in this code or supply me with another 'working' version of a fileupload that's understandable for an amateur JSP programmer.

The error i get is this:
Error creating file: java.io.IOException: Posted content type isn't multipart/form-data

Here's my code:

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html" import = "java.io.*" import = 'com.oreilly.servlet.*' %>
<%@ page import="com.oreilly.servlet.MultipartRequest" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.*" %>
<title>Project Gosu</title>
    String urlred = "loginfailure.htm";
    String name = (String) session.getAttribute( "Sessie" );
    if( name != null )
        out.println( "Hello "+name+"!" );
    if(name == null)
        MultipartRequest mrequest = new MultipartRequest(request, "C:/jakarta-tomcat-3.2.4/webapps/ProjectGosu/Login/Replays");
        Enumeration files = mrequest.getFileNames();

        while(files.hasMoreElements() )
            String upload = (String)files.nextElement();
             String filename = mrequest.getFilesystemName(upload);
    catch(Exception ex)
    System.out.println("Error creating file: " + ex );
<body LINK="#000000" VLINK="#000000" ALINK="#000000">
<table width="984" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <td height="128" colspan="3" bgcolor="F1ECE9"><img height="128" width="1024" src="../Tryout_Pic.jpg"></td>
    <td height="640" width="184" bgcolor="F1ECE9" valign="top">
    <img height="8" width="6" src="Hyperlink_pic.jpg"> <a href="../index.jsp" title="Index">Index</a><br>
    <img height="8" width="6" src="Hyperlink_pic.jpg"> <a href="main.jsp" title="Main">Main</a><br>
    <td width="616" height="640" valign="middle">
    <form name="frm" method="post" action="main.jsp" enctype="multipart/form-data">
                <table align="center">
                        <td><input type="File" name="myupload">
                        <td><input type="submit" value="Insert">
    <td width="184" height="640" bgcolor="F1ECE9" valign="top" align="center">

if you now perl cgi then you need a small code to do it .
# !/usr/bin/perl
upload_dir =".";

 $query = new CGI;

 $filename = $query->param("filename");
 $upload_filehandle = $query->upload("filename");
 $filename =~ s/.*[\/\\](.*)/$1/;

 open UPLOADFILE, ">$upload_dir/$filename";

 while ( <$upload_filehandle> )
   print UPLOADFILE;


#this will help you to save the file by $filename
#in the present directory as I have given dot as the
#upload directory the html file will include the form
#tag and the input type=file name=filename and this will
#will give u the desired output
