I don't know for sure but what about using the getRealPath method available in ServletContext interface.

Refer the docs from here (http://java.sun.com/j2ee/sdk_1.3/techdocs/api/javax/servlet/ServletContext.html#getRealPath(java.lang.String))

This method will give you the actual physical path of the executable file without hard coding the path in the source code.
