I am using the FileOutputStream to print a uploaded html file to a file on my machine. I must manipulate the data before I write it to the disk. I do use orielly's classes, but I have another problem, when I use:
FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(theFile);
The file prints in my tomcat bin directory. (I am geeting this file from a servlet using tomcat.
I am tryign to get it to print in a folder in my root directory but I cant. I tried:
fout = new FileOutputStream( "c:\\portal\\temp\\ "+ theFile );
fout = new FileOutputStream( "\\portal\\temp\\ "+ theFile );
neither works but the directory is there.

Exactly what happens why you try? Particularly, what type of exception is thrown?

Hi there,
Try this :
FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream("c:/something/something/somefile.txt");
I just tried it and it worked for me!

I think you should create a folder in c:\\portal\\temp manually. After that you invoke the fileoutputstream method. Try it......
