Dynamic ActionForwards

I'm trying to dynamically forward requests under Resin and Struts. Given the following code:

String referer = (String) request.getHeader("referer");

referer returns: http://nokia:http://nokia:8080/site/global/home/l_home.jsp

ActionForward created is (from debug):
ForwardConfig[name=null,path=http://nokia:8080/site/global/home/l_home.jsp,redirect=false,contextRelative=false]/site/global/home/l_home.jsp,redirect=false,contextRelative=false]

Error:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: path must be absolute: `http://nokia:8080/site/global/home/l_home.jsp'
at com.caucho.server.http.Application.getRequestDispatcher(Application.java:2476)
at org.apache.struts.action.RequestProcessor.doForward(RequestProcessor.java:1062)
at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.doGet(ActionServlet.java:507)


What do I need to do to be able to get a dynamic path that can be successfully forwarded by and Action class? I'd rather not have to parse and trim the referer value if possible. As far as I can see, the above path is as absolute as you can get, but I guess I'm missing something..

Hi
The action forward path should be with respect to ur context ......it should not be the full path ......so just truncate that http://nokia:8080 and form the actionforward with the rest of the path
okay ??
