In a web app for instance, I would take "relative" to mean relative to the deployment directory of the application. That is, if my app is deployed in ${TOMCAT_PATH}/webapps/myapp, a my log file my_log.txt would be located precisely in ${TOMCAT_PATH}/webapps/myapp.
Usually relative paths are relative to the current working directory, 
which I believe is undefined for a web application.
