Hi,
I am using eclipse and Tomcat to develope a simple Web tool.

I have a question on the new File( "." ).getCanonicalPath() in my jsp.
When I run the web project in my eclipse, I found the new java.io.File( "." ).getCanonicalPath() is D:\eclipse,

But after I export the web project and put it into my CATALINA_HOME\webapp,
 the java.io.File( "." ).getCanonicalPath() is changed to CATALINA_HOME\bin

is there any replacement for java.io.File( "." ).getCanonicalPath() ?

or any other way to change folder to CATALINA_HOME\webapp

http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/api/javax/servlet/ServletContext.html#getRealPath(java.lang.String) with "/"

is probably what you should be using, although i'm guessing at your intention
