      • write

        public void write​(java.io.File file)
                   throws java.lang.Exception
        A convenience method to write an uploaded item to disk. The client code is not concerned with whether or not the item is stored in memory, or on disk in a temporary location. They just want to write the uploaded item to a file.

        This implementation first attempts to rename the uploaded item to the specified destination file, if the item was originally written to disk. Otherwise, the data will be copied to the specified file.

        This method is only guaranteed to work once, the first time it is invoked for a particular item. This is because, in the event that the method renames a temporary file, that file will no longer be available to copy or rename again at a later time.

        Specified by:
        write in interface FileItem
        Parameters:
        file - The File into which the uploaded item should be stored.
        Throws:
        java.lang.Exception - if an error occurs.
      • delete

        public void delete()
        Deletes the underlying storage for a file item, including deleting any associated temporary disk file. Although this storage will be deleted automatically when the FileItem instance is garbage collected, this method can be used to ensure that this is done at an earlier time, thus preserving system resources.
        Specified by:
        delete in interface FileItem
      • getFieldName

        public java.lang.String getFieldName()
        Returns the name of the field in the multipart form corresponding to this file item.
        Specified by:
        getFieldName in interface FileItem
        Returns:
        The name of the form field.
        See Also:
        setFieldName(java.lang.String)
      • setFieldName

        public void setFieldName​(java.lang.String fieldName)
        Sets the field name used to reference this file item.
        Specified by:
        setFieldName in interface FileItem
        Parameters:
        fieldName - The name of the form field.
        See Also:
        getFieldName()
      • isFormField

        public boolean isFormField()
        Determines whether or not a FileItem instance represents a simple form field.
        Specified by:
        isFormField in interface FileItem
        Returns:
        true if the instance represents a simple form field; false if it represents an uploaded file.
        See Also:
        setFormField(boolean)
      • setFormField

        public void setFormField​(boolean state)
        Specifies whether or not a FileItem instance represents a simple form field.
        Specified by:
        setFormField in interface FileItem
        Parameters:
        state - true if the instance represents a simple form field; false if it represents an uploaded file.
        See Also:
        isFormField()
      • getOutputStream

        public java.io.OutputStream getOutputStream()
        Returns an OutputStream that can be used for storing the contents of the file.
        Specified by:
        getOutputStream in interface FileItem
        Returns:
        An OutputStream that can be used for storing the contents of the file.
      • getStoreLocation

        public java.io.File getStoreLocation()
        Returns the File object for the FileItem's data's temporary location on the disk. Note that for FileItems that have their data stored in memory, this method will return null. When handling large files, you can use File.renameTo(java.io.File) to move the file to new location without copying the data, if the source and destination locations reside within the same logical volume.
        Returns:
        The data file, or null if the data is stored in memory.
      • finalize

        protected void finalize()
                         throws java.lang.Throwable
        Removes the file contents from the temporary storage.
        Overrides:
        finalize in class java.lang.Object
        Throws:
        java.lang.Throwable
      • getTempFile

        protected java.io.File getTempFile()
        Creates and returns a File representing a uniquely named temporary file in the configured repository path. The lifetime of the file is tied to the lifetime of the FileItem instance; the file will be deleted when the instance is garbage collected.

        Note: Subclasses that override this method must ensure that they return the same File each time.

        Returns:
        The File to be used for temporary storage.
      • toString

        public java.lang.String toString()
        Returns a string representation of this object.
        Overrides:

        Returns:
        a string representation of this object.
