Hi Guys,
I want to upload a file from client to server
i m using tomcat server..
if i need to upload a file I need t give path like this in
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(new File("../webapps/examples/bhi/demos/"+file_to_upload));
my JSPs are in bhi folder. I have one more folder demos in bhi, i want to upload files into that..
by above i can upload the file..
but now if I switch to weblogic server.. this above "../webapps/examples/bhi/demos/" will not work..
in weblogic i hv put my JSPs in weblogic/myserver/public_html/bhi.., hence works

Hi Sunil,
try application.getRealPath()
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream( new File( application.getRealPath( "/bhi/demos/"+file_to_upload" ) ) );
is /examples the webapp you are in ?

int o=file_name.indexOf(':');
file_name=file_name.substring(0,o)+file_name.substring(o+1);
file_name=file_name.replace('\\','/');
int f=file_name.lastIndexOf("/");
newdemopath=file_name.substring(f+1);
int y;
String upload_file = application.getRealPath("/bhi/brochures/"+newdemopath);
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(new File(file_name));
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(new File(upload_file));
do
{
y=fis.read();
if(y !=-1)
fos.write(y);
}while(y !=-1);
fos.close();
fis.close();

Hi Sunil,
sorry, can't imagine what you might to intent with:

here some useful methods that could help:

What upload class u use ?
In the O'Reilly servlet e.g. you specify the upload ( == save )Directory in the Constructor
and get the path 2 your File Object with
.get Filesystemname()

Why don't you use an upload bean like
jspsmartupload or multipartrequest ?
