I am trying to read the URL like for eg,

I have entered URL like www.google.com and i want to store this URL as a string and I want to use this url in another java class as string in method like response.sendRedirect("that string").

How do i can do?


Thanks in advance.

Rule one about Servlets: they only know about the data passed to them as part of a request. You can't read the current state of the browser from a servlet.

Assuming you are sending a request however. You can get a whole bunch of information about the request from the HttpRequest class. Have a read through the API.
