Servlet Uploads and Resizing Images?

I'm hoping someone can give me some ideas here.
My boss approached me yesterday with an interesting problem. A product we're building for a client as a package of servlets and JSP's is going to involve uploading graphics, but the graphics need to be resized, on upload, to a standard size for use in a template.
Is there anyway to accomplish this in the servlet when it's uploaded? We're not talking something on the output (though I had suggested to her to simply use image-size tags on the JSP page when it is output) but a permanent change to the image as it's uploaded.

Try scaling the image and writing it to file. Image has a getScaledInstance method available.
