         // maximum size that will be stored in memory
         // the location for saving data that is larger than 

         List fileItems = fu.parseRequest(req);
         // assume we know there are two files. The first file is a small
         // text file, the second is unknown and is written to a file on
         // the server
         Iterator i = fileItems.iterator();
         String comment = ((FileItem);
         FileItem fi = (FileItem);
         // filename on the client
         String fileName = fi.getName();
         // save comment and filename to database
         // write the file
         fi.write("/www/uploads/" + fileName);

// End of example

FileItem.write() do not take a string as a argument, it requires a
The following code will solve this problem.

		File fil = new File("/www/uploads/" + fileName);
