You should also note a couple of other facts:

* The ability to modify web application resources is *not* defined
  in the servlet specification.  Therefore, you are totally on your
  own, and cannot expect portability across containers.

* Running webapps from unpacked directories is also not defined in
  the spec.  It is therefore not something you can count on.  Trying
  to modify existing properties via getRealPath() will, of course,
  fail in this scenario.

Web applications that want to modify and save persistent state should do so
somewhere external to the webapp itself.
