Hi there, I'm using struts and JBoss to upload and save files on the disk.
The application comes our as ear -> war
If I'm not wrong the ear file is actually extract and deployed in a temporary folder, right?
So, what would be the best way to specify the location where to save the file, I mean inside my webapp.

Thanks in advance

In a servlet or jsp you can use the getRealPath method convert
a path relative to your application root into the OS specific
path, this can help you to create a
or as per your requirement, which could be
the destination of your uploaded files within your webapp.
