How do I extract a value from the URL

I have a URL www.test.com/myshort/myapp/mypage.jsp, where myshort is a column value in my database.
I will later query for the id of this shortName (in this example it is 'myshort') which I am doing as select id from mytable where shortName='myshort';
How can I extract the 'myshort' value from the entire URL? I can't do request.getParameter() since this is not a part of the url parameter. So I am trying to use request.getRequestURI().
Can you please tell me how do I parse and get shortName using request.getRequestURI()? I know there are parse and split functions in this. How exactly can I make use of it? Can someone please help me?

Have you examined the other methods on
to see if there's something you can use? (Hint: path info, cough, cough)
