Hi all ,
I've uploaded a file to the server using struts - FormFile.
I'm able to get the file name and size in the server side.

but how do I know where it is saved on the disk??
I mean the file location?


How do I save a uploaded file to a particular location??

It's not saved to disk automatically, that's something that you'll have to do. Once you have the file you can write it to disk or even to a database. I've used the FormFile to upload a file from a form then used Hibernate to write the file to an Oracle database.

Look at the api, you'll see that FormFile has a method getInputStream...
