I have a process that begins with an "Open file" in a server component.  Is there a way to have this file be something on the client?  In other words, can the user go to a Server app and pick a file to be imported for the process?  I understand they could upload the file and then give the path, but I'd like to be a little simpler for this audience.

    Thank you very much!  With the blog post and some help from the Boston team, I was able to get this working.

    One more small detail.  I'd like to get the filename of the file I uploaded.  Is that possible?
