you can't unless you are inside that JSP page. Because you can map a context to anywhere on the disk you can't automatically know where it is. But if you are inside the JSP / Servlet you can use the context object and getRealPath to get the local path to the context.

If I understand Tim's reply, that's not completely correct. You can use getRealPath() from anywhere inside a web app to find the path of a resource anywhere within the web application. You do not need to be within the resource itself.
