What is the scope of the "User::FilePath", is it at component level or package level.  If is at package level then it can be accessed from all the components within the package.  If it is at component level then can be accessed only within that component.

I can’t see the user file path as one of the options for system variables – am I missing anything or this is changed for 2012?
