Hello
I'm new to jsp... and I thing this is a easy question, but I'm stok...
I'm trying to request the URL, and assign the value to a variable, but i get errors...
When I write it like this:
<%= request.getRequestURI() %>
it is ok, and it print out:
"/gaard_portal/index.jsp"
But i don't want to print to the screen, i want it in a variable, and work whit it there....
When I write it like this:
<%! String sideNavn = request.getRequestURI(); %>
i get the following error:
Undefined variable or class name: request
probably occurred due to an error in /gaard_portal/top4.jsp line 13:
<%! String sideNavn = request.getRequestURI(); %>

Does enyone have a sulution? -and maybe an explatination?
regards karina
... hope my spelling is readable
