I am using the upload file package. The getName() function from FileItem class return full path instead of filename alone. the description in javadoc for this function states that this will only happen in some of the browsers. But i am using explorer. This problem shouldn't happen.

there seems to be a bug in item.getName() as it returns the full path on the client's machine for the uploaded file name, instead of the file name only. To overcome that, I have used a workaround using fullFile.getName().


            File fullFile  = new File(item.getName());  
            File savedFile = new File(getServletContext().getRealPath("/"),
            fullFile.getName());
            item.write(savedFile);


I think this should do the trick
