Actually, depending on the server and framework, an uploaded file may or may not actually live in a folder, since what you really upload isn't the file, it's the data in the file and in the case of small files, the server may just keep the data in RAM.

As a result, the file upload APIs usually give you a mechanism to access the data as an input stream. If you want to store the data in a permanent file, you would construct an output File and copy the inputstream's contents to that File.

Please note that the permanent file should NOT be located within the webapp itself or within the JBoss server directories. Use an external directory. Failure to do so can have unfortunate consequences at unfortunate times.
