What's wrong with this? (ServletContext method javadoc both 2.2 and 2.3)

public java.lang.String getRealPath(java.lang.String path)

Returns a String containing the real path for a given virtual path.
For example, the path "/index.html" returns the absolute file path
on the server's filesystem would be served by a request for
"http://host/contextPath/index.html", where contextPath is the context
path of this ServletContext..

The real path returned will be in a form appropriate to the computer and
operating system on which the servlet container is running, including the
proper path separators. This method returns null if the servlet container
cannot translate the virtual path to a real path for any reason (such as
when the content is being made available from a .war archive).
So, getServletContext().getRealPath( "/" )
