Subject RE: commons-Upload: FileItem.getName()
Date Sat, 15 Apr 2006 12:16:22 GMT
Anyone wrote a wrapper for this? 

I think most developers support IE and the only useful part during an upload
scenario is filename. So everyone must have written some method to extract
filename from the whole path. 

Do we need a simple substring or additional stuff needs to be handled? 
IE runs on windows so we can be sure of that separator is "\" and not "/"
etc, right?
