This forum is for questions about JavaRanch itself. I'll move the thread to a more technical forum for you.

I've not used java/tomcat environment in months, but I think there are two things to try here:
- add the relative path of the file to the http://webservername/ to make the file path (eg http://localhost:8080/mywebsite/mysitesFiles/fileName.xyz)
- or, make sure where you are saving the file is in the same folder, or subfolder, where you are running your web application from. I don't think tomcat - or probably any decent container for that matter - will allow you to save in the container's context if it is outside of the currently running web application's folder. For instance, you probably can't save in c:\tomcat\someFolder if you are running your site out of c:\tomcat\mywebsite
