How do I get the full url (as shown in the address bar) into my JSP page?
I can use 'request.getRequestURI()'
but that only show part of the URL.
What if I want the full thing with http:// and ? parameters, etc.
Thanks,
Drew

use the request.getRequestURL() instead (includes http://...../a.jsp or whatever)
it returns a StringBuffer.
Use request.getQueryString() to get the "a=101&b=202" parameter string.

request.getRequestURL() is available with the latest servlet/JSP API. If you are using an older version, you still have to use getRequestURI and just get the host out of the request.
