I used the <html:file> tag provided by Struts for file upload. However, I need to check if the file actualy exist before I do the transfer so I need the full path and file name. Could anyone tell me how I could get this? The getFileName() method of FormFile only returns the base file name.

I read somewhere that the Jakarta commons upload class such as the CommonsMultipartRequestHandler can be used to get the full file name. Can't seem to make it work and I can't find any examples. Also tried to look for threads with similar subject here but most of them have no replies.

Thank you.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
