I believe the compiler is having a problem with this statement:



Is there a way to specify the path to a FileItem so I don't have to cast a file as a FileItem? Thanks in advance.

Well, no you can't take just anything and cast it to a FileItem. If you want to simulate what the file upload would have produced, you're going to have to produce a mock version of FileItem and have it wrap your File, or something like that.
