The form field looks like:
  <input type="file" name="myUploadFile">

.. and the form tag like (spacing for readability):

  <form  name = "project" 
       method = "post" 
       action = "/someProcessName" 
      enctype = "multipart/form-data" >


If so, I'd replace your "someProcessName" with a stub that just
echos back a page with the form contents to see what's going on ...
