I want to get the real path of a file and then using this path perform some operation within the action class. In servlets we used to have servletcontext.getrealpath("file name"), but within the ActionClass.execute() method how can i get the same information.
I have not tried this, but you can get the ServletContext using: request.getSession().getServletContext()

The Action class that your action extends also has a getServlet() method, which returns the ActionServlet instance. Once you have this object, you can get the ServletContext and any other objects you would normally get from your own servlet in a non-Struts application.
