what string?  this one..

	         File savedFile = new 
File(getServletContext().getRealPath("/"), fullFile.getName());
if I do

         out.println(fullFile);  // or

I get a "can't resolve symbol" error.. actually I can't print anything 
at all on this page, even a simple test string ( out.println("test"); )
why is he sending strings to be printed to a separate page..  (msg.jsp) 
  why doesn't anything print on this page..  this is frustrating, can't 
trouble-shoot if nothing on this page prints..... :(

thank you again..  Frances
