"Actual path" meaning what? The actual path on the *client* side? That's browser-dependent, some browsers only send the file name.

If I remember correctly (which is unlikely, I haven't used Struts 1 for around five years) the FormFile object contains the name; I don't recall if it has the entire contents of the path supplied by the browser (bearing in mind that not all browsers return the complete path; sniffing the request would answer that question).

Thank you for the help.

I got it fixed through JavaScript and got the full client side path of the file browsed for.
