What do you mean accessing your app in browser in Java? Anyway, you can check the Tomcat access log for that. In order to enable the access log in Tomcat, edit the server.xml and uncomment this line

All accesses to a Tomcat instance are logged in files called "localhost_access_log.2008-01-31.txt" or some such in the TOMCAT_HOME/logs directory.

This can be configured somewhat; search for "AccessLogValve" in the TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml file.

Http headers are set by client are used to inform server about software the client is using and how the client would prefer a server send back requested information. From a servlet, HTTP request headers can be accessed by calling several methods. In your case as you just wanna know who is accessing you application, you can implement


Note: getHearderNames() method returns Enumeration

Hope this will help.
