How can I get the absolute path of the server. Here I am explaining neatly, My tomcat server directory in c:\tomcat\webapps\. and some one may containg like c:\tomcat4.1.2\webapps... So this is varies from server to server. So How can get the above path dynamically in to the server request.
cheers

Hi narasimharao,
try
<% String rp = application.getRealPath(request.getServerName());%>
<%=rp.substring( 0, rp.indexOf("ROOT")) %>
