How do I specify the relative path of the directory where I use the MultipartRequest class from "http://www.servlets.com/cos/javadoc/com/oreilly/servlet/MultipartRequest.html" in my jsps.
eg: MultipartRequest mReq = new MultipartRequest(req, direc);

As when I want the direc to be a relative path so that when i put my main folder. I will still be able to store the image in the respective image folder

An option is to use "/", which means the root directory of the application (current web application root as defined in the web.xml) .. maybe you can use that?

You can't specify the relative path in MultipartRequest class.

Here is part of the code of MultipartRequest.java

public MultipartRequest(HttpServletRequest request,
                          String saveDirectory,
                          int maxPostSize) throws IOException {
...
 // Save the dir
    dir = new File(saveDirectory);
...}

From here, we know that it didn't let us specify relative path.

Anyway, you can use ServletContext.getRealPath() to get full path of the web application.

JSP's eg:

String fullpath = application.getRealPath("/") + direc;
MultipartRequest mReq = new MultipartRequest(req, fullpath);

application is predefined variable in jsp which is the ServletContext as obtained via getServletConfig().getContext()
