Hello,

I want to write to the network and this is the path that I have:
http://s306a5e/wasipm/Synchronize changes with Nodes.doc

when I use it for a link in html it works. but when I want to write  a new file to the directory in java it does not work.

I have tried something like these:
href="http://s306a5e/wasipm/Synchronize.doc

acronym = "CBSV";

1. String filename = "http://s306a5e/wasip/"+ acronym + "_ServerRequest.txt";
java.io.FileNotFoundException: http:\s306a5e\wasip\CBSV_ServerRequest.txt (The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.)

2. String filename = "http:////s306a5e/wasip/"+ acronym + "_ServerRequest.txt";
http:\s306a5e\wasip\CBSV_ServerRequest.txt (The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.)


Thanks very much for any advice,

http is a network protocol. You cannot write to a file using http protocol. To write to a file, you need to have access to the file by means of a file system, whether the file is local or remote.

Specifying http: as a file access protocol is wrong.
