Subject fileupload issue
Date Mon, 08 Nov 2004 15:37:57 GMT

I'm running tomcat 5.0.27, with fileupload.

Currently testing on windows 2000, with a production target of Linux.

Given a windows file, with a name containing spaces
'my documents/file.ext' I'm presuming Linux may well cough
at creating such a file.

Is there a way of uploading the file (with spaces)
and then writing the file with, say, spaces replaced
with underscore?

I'm currently using

	String fileName = fn;
	if (fileName.indexOf(" ") != -1)
	    fileName ="'"+fileName+"'"; // quote if holds spaces

	File uploadedFile = new File(AreaDir +sd.pathsep +fn);
	if ((uploadedFile.exists() && sd.overwrite) ||
	    if ((uploadedFile.exists() && sd.overwrite)){ + "file overwrite on " + fn);
		//Send email too. FIXME

	    try {
	    } catch (java.lang.Exception err) {
		retval= sd.fileWriteError;//failed upload
			     "Error on writing file to the archive. " + err);
	    }//end catch
	else {
	    retval = sd.fileExistsError; //file exists
	return retval;

I can't see how I can intercept the filename
to make the changes needed?

Regards DaveP.
