how to get full path from file type in JSP?
i written some code in JSP like this--
<input type="file" name="imagename" >
and in servlet i am retrieving 'imagename' value. But it is giving the name of the image instead of full path. My servlet code is like this:
String imagename = request.getParameter("imagename");

There is little to no reason why server should have to know full file path. If you want to upload a file, you'll need to use an appropriate library like Apache Commons FileUpload and transfer the file using.
<form action="upload-script-url" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <input type="file" name="file"> <input type="submit"> </form>
Apache Commons FileUpload will then accept and transform encoded file into a usable form.
