			boolean isFormField, final String fileName, int sizeThreshold,
			File repository) {
		// make this upload file to store into a customized directory.
		return new DiskFileItem(fieldName, contentType, isFormField, fileName, sizeThreshold, repository) {
			protected File getTempFile() {
				return new File("/Users/foo/mypath/" + fileName);

	public Media createMedia(FileItem fi, String contentType,
			String fileName, boolean isNative) {
		try {
			return fi.isInMemory() ? new AImage(fileName, fi.get()) :
					new AImage(fileName, fi.getInputStream());

		} catch (Exception e) {
			// e.printStackTrace();
		return null;
