I'm trying to access the path of the clients temporary directory, i've tried this but it just appears to display the servers temporary directory.

JSP execute on the server so you can't in any straightforwards manner get hold of the client's tmp directory from within your JSP. And why would you want to be able to do that since your JSP can never directly access that directory.

There's a technical name for web applications that attempt to write (or read) a user's local files. Malware.

Web clients are designed to only permit local file access via the explicit manual direction of the client's operator.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
