I wish to upload a file using struts (this is succesfull, in my action class i have a FormFile) now i want to email this file. How do i get from a FormFile to a File. Is there a way to get the absolute path from the FormFile, or is there another way so i can mail the uploaded file?

Thanks in advance

Getting the file in the server is quite easy and using multipart mail API you can construct a multipart message body and send using the standard java mail api.
