web script upload modification

Hi

I created an upload web script that is able to get files and upload them into alfresco.  Its similar to the upload web script example given in the 'alfrescowiki webscripts example' documentation. 

What I want to modify is the location of where all the files are being uploaded to, which is the company home space under content items.  I've been tryin to figure out how to just upload files anywhere else besides company home (e.g. data dictionary space, guest home, or even more ideally into the webscripts space).


this is the code in the upload javascript

  // create document in company home for uploaded file
  upload = companyhome.createFile("upload" + companyhome.children.length + "_" + filename);


I know companyhome is some default script node, and I tried using other default script nodes mentioned in the wiki, but to no prevail (e.g. userhome, space, document, dictionary, etc.).  Usually, I get an error saying the 'space cannot be found'. 


I did some searches in the Alfresco repository and found like paths, maybe I can set a variable equal to a path

e.g. 'guest home'
var guesthome = /${spaces.company_home.childname}/${spaces.guest_home.childname}

and then use that variable name to replace companyhome, but i'm not sure if thats right at all.


If any one can help, thanks.
