Not important but Apple's was JavaApplicationStub I think.

I'm not quite sure where you get the path you're showing?
For Apple's jvm user.dir would be set to the directory containing the application bundle. No way to know if the application had been renamed or anything.
There were macros, I guess is the term for 
$JAVAROOT    <path-to-app-bundle>/Contents/Resources/Java
$APP_BUNDLE   <path-to-app-bundle>
What I remember at the moment.
These were what allowed references within the bundle though.
