Get Context Root From Servlet Code

code I try to query the (deployed) context root of my
web application. By context root I mean that usually a http request
looks like this:
I tried to use ServletContext.getServletContextName() but it does not
servers I am using.
What I would do is to limit my web app to only be deployed under
certain context root. Otherwise my servlet will serve a http request
Is there a way to do this?

check out the javadocs for HttpServletRequest, and in specific the getRequestURL method.
But of course you've done that already because you know that the API docs are your friend?

ServletContext.getServletContextName() gets the display-name of that context. It may not be the real context path.
Use Request.getContextPath() method
