Topic: Upload API/Framework/plugin

I am looking for a client upload framework/API to handle files and folders and resource forks on OS X such as fonts this could also be photo shop or illustrator files and other more standard image files.  I have looked at a bunch of rails and jQuery add-ons but non seem to handle the OS X specific resource forks.  We are using a java applet / plugin but the user experience sucks... it creates a dmg and zips that on the client before uploading
