"Failure is not when you fall down, Its only when you don't get up again"
From API: "getPathInfo() will return a String specifying extra path information that comes after the servlet path but before the query string in the request URL; or null if the URL does not have any extra path information" Hence for the following URL http://mysite.com/servlet/DCServlet/foo?qString=myQStr the method would return "foo". If you are wondering still what the "extra path" could be here is a nice explanation I bookmarked for me. Regards, [ February 17, 2003: Message edited by: Debashish Chakrabarty ]
