It used to work, but now i am getting below error. It is saying space issue but i am not sure where to check that. Please give your suggestions?

DiskFileItemFactory   fileItemFactory = new DiskFileItemFactory();
ServletFileUpload uploadHandler = new ServletFileUpload(fileItemFactory);
uploadHandler.setFileSizeMax(15 * 1024 * 1024);
List items = uploadHandler.parseRequest(request);

Open in new window

"No space left on device" usually means that the disk drive (partition) that you are using is full.  Might also get thrown if you are exceeding a disk quota, but I don't know that for sure.

Small files get stored in memory.  Larger files (by default, if the file is over 10K in size) get stored in the system default temp directory:

Open in new window

Will return the temp directory.
