I have to change the request url and forward it. For example i need to change all "/aaa/bbb/ccc/..." urls as "/aaa/ccc/..." ("/bbb" removed
from request url)and forward it. How can i do it without response.redirect in servlet ???

Can i do it with Struts 1???

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure if I understand the problem correctly, let me try to rephrase it.
1. You are currently on page which has URL as "/aaa/bbb/ccc/"
2. On click of a button or link you want to forward it some other URL/Action.

If this is the case then yes you can do it using struts. You can use ForwardAction for the same.

Just wondering why are you worried about what is the current page URL?
I agree. Here's the link:
