I bet you are using a method to open the file that depends on the "current directory" - in the JSP environment you have NO control over the current directory - there are specific methods to find files relative to the location of a web application. See for example getRealPath() and related methods in ServletContext class.

You can probably find recent discussions in the JSP and servlet forums.
