Retrieving Server Path Programmatically

I am using Tomcat as my web server.
My project is in c:\tomcat\webapps\myproject
Is there a way to retrieve the project path (which is the path above) from either the servlet or bean?
I tried using ServletContext.getRealPath(Str) but I need to provide a String a location in returns.
I had even tried System.getProperty("user.dir") but it gives me the c:\tomcat\bin

Thanks in advance.
