How to trap the URL

Hello,
I am working in JSP. In an application, I am having Frameset with two rows. On the top frame, I am having HTML page and in the bottom frame I am displaying JSP page. Now in this JSP page, i want to trap the URL which is being shown in the addressbar. If I use request.getRequestURL(), I get the path for the jsp page. But, what I want is the path which is being displayed in the AddressBar of the browser.
Thanx in advance

Using JavaScript you can get it via window.top.location. There's nothing in the request posted to the sub-frame that will allow you to get that info, so you'll need to get it on the client side and submit it through.
hth,

Thanx Bear,
Actually I have tried that option using JavaScript. But I want to do that using JSP. Will that be possible ?
