I think you should redesign your application.

It is a bad thing.

If you generate reports on the fly, so there's no reason to save them on 
disk. If you want to cache them for a while use some cache 
software/library. If you want them to persist (really? why one want to 
persists a generated report) store them in a database or in some other 
directory, accesible with servlet or context mapping.

You do use source control to have your application sources consistent, 
right? So should you store generated, persistent reports in a source 
control system...
