Uploading a file to a web server?
Have a look at job entry "File Management/HTTP".

But I guess HTTP is used to pull file from the Web Server:confused:http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/EAI/HTTP .. Even we tried that , we are facing some authentication errors there.

See that parameter "Upload File" in the HTTP configuration dialog?
That's what made me think you could use it for uploading a file.
Seems to be a trap, though.
Meanwhile there are other options: FTP, SFTP.
You even could resort to a shell based solution.
PS: Just tried for myself and everything went smooth. What's your problem again?
URL = http://localhost/upload
Upload file = C:\test.txt
Target file = C:\dummy
URL must point to a directory.
Target file will receive any response data from the web server.
