Is there easy function to get URI with Context Path NOT included?

I am using RequestDispatcher to forward to resource.
getRequestURI() includes Context Path.
RequestDispatcher getRequestDispatcher resource is relative to Context Path.
So /contextPath/contextPath fails...

Have you checked getContextPath() ?

Just use '/' then the path (relative to the context) of the resource to which you want to forward.
Why would you need to read the path from somewhere if the resource is inside your own webapp?
