I am using similar code to upload my files in jsp. The images are uploading fine, But i am getting the Http 404 access denied error.

HTTP Status 404 - C:\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\start2finish\ImageUploads (Access is denied)

Any help will be greatly appreciated:

Here is the code sniipet:


System.out.println("Content Type ="+request.getContentType());

DiskFileUpload fu = new DiskFileUpload();
// If file size exceeds, a FileUploadException will be thrown

List fileItems = fu.parseRequest(request);
Iterator itr = fileItems.iterator();

while(itr.hasNext()) {
FileItem fi = (FileItem);

//Check if not form field so as to only handle the file inputs
//else condition handles the submit button input
if(!fi.isFormField()) {
System.out.println("\nNAME: "+fi.getName());
System.out.println("SIZE: "+fi.getSize());
File tempFileRef = new File(fi.getName());

//Create a new directory
File testDir = new File("C:\\Tomcat 5.5\\webapps\\start2finish\\ImageUploads");
if ( !testDir.exists() ){

//"C:\\Tomcat 5.5\\webapps\\start2finish\\ImageUploads"

if (fi.getName() != "") {
File fNew= new File("C:\\Tomcat 5.5\\webapps\\start2finish\\ImageUploads", tempFileRef.getName());

else {
System.out.println("Field ="+fi.getFieldName());
