When doing

from org.apache.commons.fileupload import *
FileUpload is None

when doing

from org.apache.commons.fileupload import FileUpload
FileUpload is set correctly.

Checked also with other java-classes

Which version? 2.5b1 or the latest SVN?

I encountered this issue in the 2.5b1 version, downloadable from the
website, but it does not affect me with a checkout of the latest SVN.

I'm using the 2.5b1 release. Glad to hear this is fixed already!

I see also this feature for the release 2.5b1.
Import from java using : from <package> import *
does not work

So this is a dup of unless some of you
are using standalone mode (or turning off package scanning in some other
way).  If you have package scanning off, you cannot use from <java
class> import * due to limits of the JVM (Native Java packages have no
getClasses() and package scanning works around this).  So in this case
you need to turn scanning on, or use explicit imports like:

from import File

But why does this work just fine with 2.2?

Avi: this *is* a bug in 2.5b1 that is fixed in trunk.  standalone mode
wouldn't work this way in 2.2 either.
