Implicit Objects in JSP 0.91?

I'm trying to make a call to application.getRealPath() on a WAS server that appears to be running JSP 0.91, and failing miserably. The same code works fine on a Tomcat 5 server running JSP 1.2. The error messages seem to be indicating that the application implicit object is undefined.
Were implicit objects available in 0.91? If not, does anyone have a suggestion as to how I might acquire the real path of a file under 0.91?
TIA.

I don't know about .9 but getRealPath is available on the context object. getServletContext() or something like that.

If it's still running 0.91 then it may not implement everything required. Do some test. If it's failing, it's probably just not implemented.

AFAIK, this was not supported in JSP 0.91. I just did a quick search of the JSP 0.91 spec and could not even find a reference to implicit objects -- I think this was actually first introduced in JSP 1.0.
BTW, though, if you're running on a version of WAS that supports 0.91, either you're using WAS 3.5, which also supported JSP 1.0 through a switch, or your running WAS 3.0. In any case both products have gone out of service, so I'd advocate upgrading as soon as possible.
