Can Fileup be used with ColdFusion for file uploads?

FileUp can be used in a ColdFusion application by using a ColdFusion web form to submit the HTTP request containing files to be uploaded. However, FileUp depends on calls made to ASP during the upload process, so it is typically instantiated in either an ASP page, or an ASP.NET page with the ASPCompat directive set to "true". Following this scenario, the resulting response would show the name of the ASP/ASP.NET page in the url displayed in the browser's address window. If filename extension consistency is a concern, instead of generating an HTML response from this ASP/ASP.NET page, use


to redirect to a page with a .cfm extension. This .cfm page can be responsible for returning an appropriate response to the browser. Any variables that need to be passed to the new page can be added to a query string.
