When i try to retrieve the
file from the
page from the <input> tag it gives excception.
I`m construting my File using the file path that is selected by user in the <input> tag
<input type=file accept=image/gif name='browse'>
File f=new File(s); //this line results in runtime exception
but when directly give it absolute path of image like File f=new File("C:\Users\Mahtab\Desktop\pic.gif");
it works without exception.
So the problem is in constructing the File object .
Please give some solution to this problem

You cannot use file I/O to upload a file. File I/O can only access local files. Please see the
for information on how to upload files.
