Java HTTP Post file upload

This is the java code to upload a json file via HTTP Post. I am using for that the HttpClient from Apache.

byte[] data = outStream.toByteArray()
HttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
HttpPost httpPost = new HttpPost("http://localhost:8080/YourResource");

ByteArrayBody byteArrayBody = new ByteArrayBody(data, "application/json", "some.json");
MultipartEntity multipartEntity = new MultipartEntity();
multipartEntity.addPart("upload", byteArrayBody);
httpPost.setEntity( multipartEntity );

HttpResponse response = client.execute(httpPost);
Reader reader = new InputStreamReader(response.getEntity().getContent());
