How to get the real path of Java application at runtime?

I am creating a Java application where I am using log4j. I have given the absolute path of configuration log4j file and also an absolute path of generated log file(where this log file are generated). I can get the absolute path of a Java web application at run time via:

String prefix = getServletContext().getRealPath("/");


but in the context of a normal Java application, what can we use?

Answer

Try;

String path = new File(".").getCanonicalPath();
