In the general case, no. Commons FileUpload can provide to you only what is
provided to it by the browser (or other client). Browsers do not provide
such information, and in fact there is no guarantee that an uploaded file
item actually started out as a file in the first place. A custom client, of
course, could add such information in such a manner that it could be
extracted by matching code on the server, but you would have to implement
both sides of this yourself.
