file upload in jsp

P: 2
I have to upload a file using jsp. Am using netbeans 6.9. The file gets uploaded successfully if the source file name & destination file name are same. But in my application I have to change the destination file name for which I used the following code:
"sourceFileName.renameTo(destinationFileName); "
But then the function renameTo() is not regonised by the IDE in spite of me importing java.lang.*
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

renameTo is a method in the File class not in the String class.
Call it on a File handle that represent your file.

Sorry.. I din't get you..
I have used it in the try block of my jsp. If i don't rename my source file, it is getting uploaded successfully...

Don't do sourceFileName.renameTo(destinationFileName)

Instead do
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. new File(sourceFileName).renameTo(destinationFileName);
if it's allowed on your system.
P.S You should not be writing Java code in JSPs
