HTML 5 has a new attribute on input file: multiple.

When present, the user agent must allow the file chooser to select multiple files.

While the pass through attributes feature allows this to render correctly:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

    <h:form id="form" enctype="multipart/form-data" prependId="false">
        <p><h:inputFile id="file" value="#{fileUploadBean.uploadedFile}" p:multiple="multiple"> 
             <f:validator validatorId="FileValidator" />

The renderer for javax.faces.Input javax.faces.File doesn't handle this case correctly.

Instead, as it iterates through the parts, it just overwrites the preceding part with each file in the uploaded collection.

I think a better strategy is to always have the value of the component be a List<Part> instead of just Part.

Set priority to baseline ahead of JSF 2.3 triage. Priorities will be assigned accurately after this exercise.
