I had the below folder structure

Main_Project_folder
  -> Content
       -> old_content
            -> file2.txt
  -> file2.txt

i.e., in main project folder there is a folder content and a file file2.txt and in that content folder there is a folder old_content and in that there is a file with same name file2.txt

to get file2.txt
I wrote in the below way
String path= request.getRealPath("//file2.txt");

how to write for getting file2.txt in the old_content folder

I tried in the below way but it is still pointing file2.txt
String scpath = request.getRealPath("//Content//old_content//file2.txt");

assuming main_project_folder is your apps root directory then it should be:

String scpath = request.getRealPath("Content/old_content/file2.txt");
