I am already able to do that by finding the whole path of the web application , and manage to find the file location.
But it seems like to much unnecessary work to me.
I am sure there is a folder that i can put the file i want in my web app structure , and reach it by just typing the file name "myfile.txt"

what do you think ?

I am not really sure about what you want to do... I mean, you want to do File f = new File("somFile"); and get a file that you have in a specific folder in your webapp, is that?

Yes, I answered you in the first post, if you get the path of that file you will see where the file has been created or picked from if exists

Try System.getProperty("user.dir")).
That will give you your current directory.
