If you simply need to load a file from a client machine and can put
software on the client machine, then the XCC library is your best bet.
It lets you stream a file across the net into MarkLogic. It is to
MarkLogic what JDBC is for a relational database. There are Java and
.NET versions available at developer.marklogic.com.
If you're wanting to handle a web browser file upload (RFC 1867) then
you'll need something on the server that understands the special file
format with which a browser uploads the file. If you have a Java front
end (aka JBoss), there are lots of Java libraries that can do this
(Apache has one, and I wrote one myself at http://servlets.com/cos).
Tthe Java layer can catch the file(s) and use XCC to insert them into
MarkLogic (or you could just save them on the filesystem and do an
xdmp:load() for a dirt simple approach).
Or if your server is pure XQuery you could write an RFC 1867 parser in
XQuery or maybe someone on the list has already written one in XQuery
and would be willing to share.
If you have another kind of situation, let us know more.
