Hi Experts,

Here i have created a connection with UCM using RIDC API in the Servlet class , Now i want a UI from which a user get the file uploaded on the UCM so to achieve that i used JSP page and used the <input type ="file" > as a multiform and on the servlet page it used Apache file upload api to handle the request for the parameter from the following code:


  ServletFileUpload sf = new ServletFileUpload(new DiskFileItemFactory());

            List<FileItem> multiparts = sf.parseRequest(request);            

                for(FileItem item : multiparts)                         

                    name = new File(item.getName()).getPath();

                            System.out.println("name fo file "  +name);

like i have uploaded from following folder dir:


but the parameter pass on the servlet is "test.txt"

and putting the string "name" put under        dataBinder.addFile("primaryFile", new File("name"));

Then its throw an error here i want to put the full directory of the uploaded doc.

    Hi ,

    YOu have to pass the full path of your file. I can see you only passing file name and it should not work.

    Primary file will only take the file name of the item being passed and it will not take the full path since that is not needed for the wcc primary file attribute.

    So, is the requirement that when a file is being uploaded from a disk folder, that same folder structure should be created on WCC as well ?
