My guess would be that you are running Tomcat as a different user than the
one owning the home directory you are trying to write to.

In that case it doesn't really have anything to do with tomcat or

Try saving the uploaded files to some common directory. Create a directory
called.. say, /opt/myapp . give full access to everything and everyone by
issuing the command "sudo chmod 777 /opt/myapp".

Or if you are really sure that it's what you want to do, you could just go
and give the user running tomcat access to write in /home/abc.
