Well I have a little problem that cause me a lot of trouble.
I have created my first jsf web site based on xml files so in my java code I load those files and process it.
In the development phase the pats of the files was kind of hardcoded laike absolute path and now , when evrything else is done, I m having problem placing tis site on the server because I can found the way for loading Files with relative paths on the server.
I need just those one or two lines to get File from the public-html folder...

String sRoot = methodToGetRootFoolder();

<%
  URL theFile = pageContext.getServletContext().getResource( "/file/relative/to/webapp/root.txt" ) ;
%>

should do it?

ie:  if the files are in the webapp's root directory, then:

<%
  URL theFile = pageContext.getServletContext().getResource( "/file.txt" ) ;
%>

should return a URL for it (which you can then use to load the resource)

That's the way.
I have used getRealPath instead of getResource but that is it.
Thanks
