Url Parsing Problem

Hello Folks,

Rookie programmer here, need your suggestion about a little problem. The problem is our application has two URLs, for people trying to access it internally and for the folks outside the company. I need to write conditional logic to interop to a different application based on whether users are coming from the .Com or .ORG URL. What is the best way to do this? Right now I am inclining toward building the url using
URl=(request.getScheme() + "://" +
request.getServerName() + ":" +
request.getServerPort() +
request.getRequestURI()); , and checking whether the user came from the COM or ORG url, Do you guys think this is the best way to do this or is there a better way to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

If you only need to check for .com versus .org, you don't really need to build the entire url, the request.getServerName() should contain the .com or .org bits.

We're doomed!!<br />Yay!!!<br />No that's bad Girr!!<br />Yay!!!
I agree. Here's the link:
