Upload large files : Spring Boot

So guys, I was dealing with a problem recently. I was getting OutOfMemoryError when trying to upload and save large files (like 2/3 gbs). I was trying to deal it with HttpServletRequest but didn't end so well. But after spending some time thinking about the universe, mens style, water pond (road? seriously?!!) on dhaka city after a heavy rain and how to make life easier doing absolutely nothing, figured out the nicest way to do it.

We'll use apache commons IO to copy inputstream (and write) to a file. But it has nothing to do with OutOfMemoryError. It's just a convenient and simple way to write inputstream to a file
1. Dependency

2. Create a multipart form
<form th:action="@{/admin/categories/create}" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
