Uploading files to the current directory.

I want to upload some files to the current directory. i.e. the directory in which the jsp's are kept. I am using Orilley file upload jar for it.
Now the problem is that the upload facility takes the absolute directory path for uploading the file and i cannot get the absolute path at the server where i am executing the application.
Now the question is ..is there any way by which i can get the currently executing directory in the JSP or otherwise..
can i upload some file using orilley (or any other facility ) to the current directory.
-Thanks

hi kaustubh
have you tried "jspsmartupload"...??
i works quite well for me, i never have to give the absolute path.

This code will also give you the path where the JSp exists.

application.getRealPath("filename.jsp");
