Hello,

Can anyone give me a practical example of the path info as returned by getPathInfo() of HttpServletRequest. Apparently it is different from the servlet path and the query string. What is it then?

Thanks in advance,

Julien.

Julien,
Suppose you have your servlet to match "/javaranch/*" and I type the URL "mysite.com/javaranch/bigmoose?name=value"

The components are:
domain - mysite.com
servlet path - javaranch
path info - bigmoose
query string - name=value

This could be used if you have a servlet that processes many types of requests.
