I have my Web application on Tomcat server(without Apache).
The IP is mapped to some DSN.
In my JSP when i fetch the name of the server(request.serverName() )
it is displayed it as LocalHost and not the server name.
Does any configuration need to be done?
Thanks in Advance.

Nitin, please do not cross-post the same question to multiple forums. Any discussion of this topic should happen here.
