No.

Furthermore, even with the methods provided by the ServletContext object, it is not always possible to find the directory dynamically because web applications are not required to be run from a directory.

You said not to ask so I won't but if you can tell us what it is that you're trying to accomplish maybe someone can suggest an alternate approach.
