How to upload a file via a HTTP multipart request in Java without using any external libraries

There was this situation when there was a need for my applet to send some log files (generated by some desktop application) on the remote clients.

To keep my applet lean, I chose to implement this file upload function by sending a HTTP multipart request when my applet loads on the remote client’s browser.

This post documents how I can upload a file by sending a HTTP multipart request in Java without using any external libraries. For the sake of brevity, I used the server endpoint that I had discussed earlier to accept the file from the codes that will be mentioned in this post.
