Hi,
Is it possible to get full contextPath that is
if we have a context like http://localhost:8080/examples/servlet/HelloWorldExample

Now is it possible to retrieve the physical location of examples folder. ?
say like C:\Tomcat\webapps\examples


Regards
Balaji

Use getRealPath() of ServletContext.
