Hi everyone,
this is my first post i have a question for you.
I would like to make a type deirect www.google.com
I tried this code but does not work.



the result is http://mysite/mycontext/www.google.com

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Fabio!

URLs come in 2 forms: Absolute and Relative.

An Absolute URL contains all the components of the actual URL. For example: http://www.google.com

A Relative URL omits components. However, since an Absolute URL is required to make an actual HTTP request, the client will supply the missing information in order to build an Absolute URL from the relative URL. Relative URLs are relative to the URL of the requesting page, so if you place a URL link in the form 'href="www.google.com"' on the page you served from "http://www.mywebserver.com/faces/page1.jsp", the client (browser) would build the absolute URL of "http://www.myserver.com/faces/www.google.com".

Which is why your request didn't work.
