Try this in a JSP    
 
<%=application.getRealPath(request.getServletPath())%>

thanks for reply

this code gives me the complete application file path

I would like to have a method which can get me the portion of the path ,for instance C:\Apache\webapps\myapp\new of the complete app path which may look like C:\Apache\webapps\myapp\new\index.jdp

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

you can strip off the filename using string manipulations.

String fullPath = application.getRealPath(request.getServletPath());
String neededPath = fullPath.substring(0, fullPath.lastIndexOf("\"));

Or another way, for system independence,  
<%
  java.io.File file = new java.io.File(application.getRealPath(request.getServletPath()));  
%>
Path to parent is  <%=file.getParent()%>

Try something like this:

<%

String path = application.getRealPath(request.getServletPath());
String uri = request.getRequestURI();

String desired = path.substring(0, path.length()-uri.length());

%>

I am confused I thought "Delphine" wanted the parent directory.  
"objects" your code in  Tomcat results in  
desired= Tomcat_Home\webapps

I thought they wanted the root directory of the webapp, though I'll have to admit I'm not positive.
My codes wrong anyway, should be something like:

<%

String path = application.getRealPath(request.getServletPath());
String uri = request.getRequestURI();
String ctx = request.getContextPath();
String desired = path.substring(0,
  path.length() - uri.length() + ctx.length());

%>
