Class DiskFileItemFactory

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    FileItemFactory

    public class DiskFileItemFactory
    extends Object
    implements FileItemFactory

    The default FileItemFactory implementation. This implementation creates FileItem instances which keep their content either in memory, for smaller items, or in a temporary file on disk, for larger items. The size threshold, above which content will be stored on disk, is configurable, as is the directory in which temporary files will be created.

    If not otherwise configured, the default configuration values are as follows:

    • Size threshold is 10KB.
    • Repository is the system default temp directory, as returned by System.getProperty("java.io.tmpdir").

    NOTE: Files are created in the system default temp directory with predictable names. This means that a local attacker with write access to that directory can perform a TOUTOC attack to replace any uploaded file with a file of the attackers choice. The implications of this will depend on how the uploaded file is used but could be significant. When using this implementation in an environment with local, untrusted users, setRepository(File) MUST be used to configure a repository location that is not publicly writable. In a Servlet container the location identified by the ServletContext attribute java.servlet.context.tempdir may be used.

    Temporary files, which are created for file items, should be deleted later on.

      • DiskFileItemFactory

        public DiskFileItemFactory()
        Constructs an unconfigured instance of this class. The resulting factory may be configured by calling the appropriate setter methods.
      • DiskFileItemFactory

        public DiskFileItemFactory​(int sizeThreshold,
                                   File repository)
        Constructs a preconfigured instance of this class.
        Parameters:
        sizeThreshold - The threshold, in bytes, below which items will be retained in memory and above which they will be stored as a file.
        repository - The data repository, which is the directory in which files will be created, should the item size exceed the threshold.

      • getSizeThreshold

        public int getSizeThreshold()
        Returns the size threshold beyond which files are written directly to disk. The default value is 10240 bytes.
