These constants are defined for use in Joomla and extensions:-

JPATH_ADMINISTRATOR The path to the administrator folder.
JPATH_BASE The path to the installed Joomla! site.
JPATH_CACHE The path to the cache folder.
JPATH_COMPONENT The path to the current component being executed.
JPATH_CONFIGURATION The path to folder containing the configuration.php file.
JPATH_INSTALLATION The path to the installation folder.
JPATH_LIBRARIES The path to the libraries folder.
JPATH_PLUGINS The path to the plugins folder.
JPATH_ROOT The path to the installed Joomla! site.
JPATH_SITE The path to the installed Joomla! site.
JPATH_THEMES The path to the templates folder.
JPATH_XMLRPC The path to the XML-RPC Web service folder.

These constants are defined in _path_/includes/defines.php except JPATH_BASE which is defined in _path_/index.php.

Note: These paths are the absolute paths of these locations within the file system, NOT the path you'd use in a URL.

For URL paths, try using JURI::base.
