Yes - they're just part of the Tomcat process.

Correct.

David S's concerns about the use of getRealPath() apply to servlets
attempting to access resources within the deployed app, not to file
system references outside of the app's deployment location.  As Dave
suggests, familiarity with the servlet spec is strongly recommended.
