Hello there
I had problem with fileupload . I am using jsp with tomcat server and uploadBean package from javazoom(www.javazoom.com) .
The upload it self works except that i can't change the file path .It should be absolute like c:/.../..
i can't do like this ../image/folder  ??????????

the uploadBean is a bean that handle uploading ..I declare it and specify the folder to which
files are loaded like this


<jsp:useBean id="upBean" scope="page" class="javazoom.upload.UploadBean" >
  <jsp:setProperty name="upBean" property="folderstore" value="D:/folder" />
</jsp:useBean>

when i tried to see others problem in javazoom forum no one seems to care if the folder path is absoulte ....i mean no one.
It doesnot seems to be right.

please help me

note(more info about the uploadBean is in www.javazoom.com)

Have you tried adding an <context> entry in the server.xml file in the config folder of Tomcat?  If you don't do so, Tomcat will look for your app in its webapps folder.  Otherwise, you can define where in your file system Tomcat should look for the root of your webapp.

don't do you mean not changing path? you said:
<jsp:setProperty name="upBean" property="folderstore" value="D:/folder" />
is the uploaded file not storing in the d:/folder dir?

thank you all i will try your suggestions.
For Kennethxu  , the files are uploaded successfully to the specified path but if i wished to put my website on a real server i wont specify a folder path like C:/... ??????? . That's the problem.

For anthony castillon i realy didn't get your point  but i will try to look in it further may be i misunderstood something with context entry concept...although I'll be glad if you help me more .
 
To copyPastGhost i didn't read the example yet but it seems it's the answer.

THANKS ALL
