Hi everybody!

I am using the package com.oreilly.servlet for uploading files to my server.

What I wanted to do is upload an image that has a name but I want to save it in my server with another name.

I want to save the image:

client:  c:/images/image.jpg

and overwrite this image in the server in

server: c:/server/images/serverimage.jpg

is there any easy way to do it?

Thanks!

Pablo

1. create your File with the name you want
2. get your InputStream
3. write the stream to the File

The name of 1st file has no connection with 2nd
All you need is to handle the Streams!
So jerelw is right

Sorry about my lack of knowledge, but I don't know how to do that.

I am using the object MultipartRequest:

MultipartRequest(HttpServletRequest request ,String filePath , int size).

Constructor for class com.oreilly.servlet.MultipartRequest
Constructs a new MultipartRequest to handle the specified request, saving any uploaded files to the given directory, and limiting the upload size to the specified length.

Just creating the object the file is written, I don't get any parameters or anything, so I don't know how to handle the file.

Thanks again,

Pablo

public static void writeToFile(String fileName, InputStream is) throws Exception {
    try {
     
       FileOutputStream fos    = new FileOutputStream(new File(fileName));          
       BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(is);          
       
       int c = 0;          
       
       while ((c = bis.read()) != -1) {              
         fos.write(c);          
      }
       fos.flush();
       fos.close();
    }
     catch(Exception e) {
       throw new Exception("Err Writing Contents: " + e);
     }    
  }

use request.getInputStream();

to get your InputStream
