    I am trying to create multiple file upload using Andrew Valum's uploader
    http://valums.com/ajax-upload/ .

    When I try to upload example files I get following output:
    background1.jpg 22.2kB Successfully Uploaded!
    birdie.jpg 0.1MB Failed
    black.gif 1.5kB Failed

    Most of the time all files seem to be uploaded correctly despite having
    error messages.

    I can't understand what I am doing wrong here.

    Relevant code in application.html.erb

    function createUploader(){
    var uploader = new qq.FileUploader({
    allowedExtensions: [],
    element: document.getElementById('file-uploader-demo1'),
    action: '/wedding_photos/multiupload',

    onComplete: function(id, fileName, responseJSON){
    if (responseJSON.success) {
    $$('.qq-upload-failed-text').first().update(' Successfully
    $$('.qq-upload-failed-text').first().update(' Hmm .. upload
    // in your app create uploader as soon as the DOM is ready
    // don't wait for the window to load
    window.onload = createUploader;

    And this is method definition in the relevant controller
    def multiupload
    logger.info "\n\n\n I'm in multiupload\n\n\n"

    @filename = params['qqfile']

    newf = File.open('/tmp/nextAttempt_' + @filename, "wb")
    str = request.body.read

    render :text => '{success:true}'

    --------the end----------the end---------
