in my application, files are temporary. So even if they are deleted in 
doesn't matter.
What I mean is images are pushed inside a client browser when they are 
generated, but then are no longer used.
I prefer to create the directory within my application, to avoid 
permissions issues
As I understood, context.getRealPath("/"); will return the context of my 
application, even if my app is deployed within a war(as soon as 
UnpackWars is set to true in Tomcat).
So I can deal with this command. I will provide anyway a mechanism to 
check if context.getRealPath("/"); is null, in such case the application 
should take the values from init parameters
