Dear All,
I was wondering if someone can help me with this.
When i am uploading a file, I provide the place of the file on the clients machine , how come it is saved on the server. I mean for example if we are using Jakarta Common upload. it provide you with the possibilty to "write" the file, But where does it get writtien? to the server ?!?! so the path I proved for the file item is on the server?

I am sorry, but this is very confusing and I do not understand what is happening.

Thanks a lot

Uploading means transferring a file from the client (where the browser runs) to the server (where the web app runs). What you're describing sounds like downloading (for which you don't need any extra library - you can just provide a link to the file on the web page).

What exactly are you trying to do?
