I've been using Tomcat/local machine to produce some jsp pages for uploading files.
Files are selected and added to a listbox on a form, once the form is submitted - the filenames in the list are uploaded. Firstly there is a check to see if they exist. Something to the effect of..
File file = new File(filenames[x]); file.exist();
for each file.
So typically in the listbox there will be C:\readme.txt or something to that effect. On local machine, this works perfectly - files are found and uploaded. However now, since I put this online to a server (which is an oracle server) when the form is submit -- the file can not be found. Initially when submit, the \'s would be removed.. (filenames which are not found are displayed in an error message) e.g C:\log.txt becomes C:log.txt so I added code to change this to unix separators.. C:\log.txt then becomes C:/log.txt ... still it cant find the file.
My experience with unix is fairly limited, is there a certain of writing a filename like that so that the jsp can pick it up? Or perhaps something I should look into to do with server itself? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks
