prolly ya could create a temp file and use it to determine your absolute path and delete it after?
String tempName = "foo";
File temp = new File(tempName);
temp.createNewFile();
String path = temp.getAbsolutePath();
String path = path.substring(0, path.indexof(tempName));
something this way should werk, grtx

Thank you.. eric clark for your fast response,
it does not give the actual physical path..
I have got the correct answer
using the getRealPath() of servletContext
it's working fine

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
