 * <p>The default {@link org.apache.commons.fileupload.FileItemFactory}
 * implementation. This implementation creates
 * {@link org.apache.commons.fileupload.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.</p>
 * <p>If not otherwise configured, the default configuration values are as
 * follows:
 * <ul>
 *   <li>Size threshold is 10KB.
 *   <li>Repository is the system default temp directory, as returned by
 *       <code>System.getProperty("").
 * </ul>
