Hi All,
I need a help from you all. I need to upload a file from client machine to server. I did it using MultipartHttpServletRequest API. Now i want to get the last modified date of a file.I used file.lastModified method to get the date but it returns the date when we upload the file to server, it not returns the original last modified date.Please let me know how to get the value.

Thanks in advance.

Impossible. You would have to do this client-side, passing the last modified date to the server additionally.
I agree. Here's the link:
