That is true, but I checked in the debuger that it is not null or "". It is set
to a very nice path "C:\\workspace\\msz\\web\\" returned by getRealPath().
Moreover it is very nice visible inside collection props under key "REL_PATH"
and value "C:\\workspace\\msz\\web\\". I really don't know why it isn't working.
:-(

Hmm. It is set and in the debuger I see it's not null... So probably it's not
null . ;-)
