upload a file to a server

With this  class : http://www.nsftools.com/tips/FTPConnection.java

What should I do to upload a file to the server?


            try {
                  if (returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {

                        imageFile = fileChooser.getSelectedFile();
                        imageName = imageFile.getName();
                        loadGraphicsLocation = imageFile.getPath();

                        if (connection.connect(SERVER)) {
                              if (connection.login(USER, PASSWORD)) {
                                    


                                    System.out.println("Im logged in");  // ok
                                    connection.changeDirectory(Data.IMAGES_DIRECTORY); // ok
                                    System.out.println("Im files in\n" + connection.listFiles());  // ok
                                    
                                                                                                 
                                                                                                  connection.uploadFile(imageName);  // DOES NOT WORK
                                    


                                    

                              }
                              connection.disconnect();
                        }
                  }

            } catch (UnknownHostException e) {
                  System.out.println("ERROR A: " + e.getMessage());
            } catch (IOException e) {
                  System.out.println("ERROR B: " + e.getMessage());
            }

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What error are you getting? You might try the absolute path

Well, I dont receive any error at all, it just wont load.

I found a solution to my problem by using :

connection.executeDataCommand("stor "+iname, imageStream);
instead of
connection.uploadFile(imageName);  


      String loadRoomMainImage() {
            // get the image
            String iname = "error";
            String loadGraphicsLocation = "not defined";
            File imageFile = null;
            JFileChooser fileChooser = new JFileChooser(loadGraphicsLocation);
            
            int returnVal = fileChooser.showOpenDialog(null);

            FTPConnection connection = new FTPConnection();

            try {
                  FileInputStream imageStream = null;
                  if (returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {

                        imageFile = fileChooser.getSelectedFile();
                        iname = imageFile.getName();
                        loadGraphicsLocation = imageFile.getPath();

                        if (connection.connect(Data.SERVER)) {
                              if (connection.login(Data.USER, Data.PASSWORD)) {
                                    connection.changeDirectory(Data.IMAGES_DIRECTORY);                                    
                                    imageStream = new FileInputStream(imageFile);                                    
                                    connection.executeDataCommand("stor "+iname, imageStream);
                              }
                              connection.disconnect();
                        }
                  }

            } catch (UnknownHostException e) {
                  System.out.println("unknown host error: " + e.getMessage());
            } catch (IOException e) {
                  System.out.println("io exception: " + e.getMessage());
            }            
            
            return iname;
            
      }
