yes, I am using item.getName(), so when I do the upload, I should create the file without
the path, just the file name only, and it will append that file as HTTP request? Like you

I guess probably you are using the file name from item.getName() to
create a File and pass it to write. The file name may contains client

path from the file name. Hope this helps.
