Upload using MultipartRequest...

I am able to upload to the root directory, but when i specify subdirectory, i get an error saying invalid directory.
This is what i am doing
MultipartRequest multi = new MultipartRequest(req, ".\\myserver\\public_html", 1024*1024);
The following works fine.
MultipartRequest multi =
new MultipartRequest(req, ".", 1024*1024);
Also is there way that i can get the filename first even before i do the actual upload as i want to check for the type of file, want to limit for just 3 type of files(.txt, .doc, .html). And also is there a way that i can do the virus check before its actually uploaded.
Could anyone please let me know.
Thanks,
Appreciate your help and anticipating for your reply!

I can upload to any subdirectory in my server.
I had specified a directory which was not existing, but this works fine now.
MultipartRequest multi = new MultipartRequest(req, ".\\myserver\\public_html", 1024*1024);
I have another problem how to specify the user when the user's file exceeds max size set, it will just throw a IOException if size is greater than the specified size. How to let the user know of this? Also how to do the virus scan?
Thanks,
Appreciate your help!
