 * <p> This interface provides access to a file or form item that was
 * received within a <code>multipart/form-data POST request.
 * The items contents are retrieved by calling {@link #openStream()}.</p>
 * <p>Instances of this class are created by accessing the
 * iterator, returned by
 * {@link FileUploadBase#getItemIterator(RequestContext)}.</p>
 * <p>Note: There is an interaction between the iterator and
 * its associated instances of {@link FileItemStream}: By invoking
 * {@link java.util.Iterator#hasNext()} on the iterator, you discard all data,
 * which hasn't been read so far from the previous data.</p>
