Full file path

I'm having problems finding the full path of a file using the corresponding tag in JSF. I'm using <hx:fileUpload> tag and tried with the old <input type="file"> but it turns out firefox and IE behave differently with IE showing the full path and unlike.

Any ideas on getting the full path?

What do you want to do with the full path? It's the full path on client's machine, which should not be accessible to you anyway.
