I have form in which user fills some information related to a project. When user hit the submit , it should save everything in database(that is fine,that is working) but also i want that when user hit submit, that servelt which is inserting everything in database should also create a directory structure like this:
c://itarch/project_docs/proejctname
proejctname can be any name which user fills at the time of filling information in the form.
