Extract information form URL

My application context root is '/rr/la' and my login page is '/login.xhtml'. But i need to extract some information from the URL. So the request can come like ''.

I need to extract 'abcd/efgh'. Extraction is easy. But my problem is that when i do 'request.getRequestURI()' in my Servlet Filter it gives me '/rr/la/login.xhtml' rather that '/rr/la/abcd/efgh/login.xhtml'.

How to get this information.

Have you tried request.getPathInfo?
