in the old ages there was no such thing as multifile uploading with either Flash or Silverlight or HTML5. There were signed java applets one could use but Microsoft had put ActiveX into play, which only works in Internet Explorer btw. Nowadays not many ActiveX
is being used anymore due to security issues, old technology and because it only works/worked in Internet explorer so it didn't gain the wide adoption Microsoft had hoped for in the end. Basically I find it strange to see that a supervisor wants you to put
something like this together in these modern ages of HTML5.
