Hi all,

http://localhost:9080/appName/page?param1=true#123
From the above URL, I'd like to retrieve the anchor information (#123), but I cannot find it in the HttpServletRequest object, does anyone know how can I retrieve it? Thanks.

There is no way to retrieve it because the browser doesn't send it.
This is only used on the client side.
