http url getting converted into https

I am working on an portal development which involves travel bookings. One of the pages which is a secured one has got a link back to the homepage(supposed to be non-secured one). The problem here is the link to the homepage is getting converted into a secured one(ie https protocol) from an non-secured one(ie http). When a user clicks on the homepage link, then the user is taken to the secured homepage with a security warning from the browser.

This works fine in our development,system, Uat testing servers, but fails in the Production server.
Environment used:
App server:Weblogic6.1
UI developed in JSP
OS: Solaris

If a user hits the homepage with an url say, and in between enters an secured page having the same url ie From this page, the link to the homepage is supposed to be a non-secured one ie . This url is read from the properties file. Somewhat the url is getting converted into which should not be the case.

Can anyone let me know waht could be the problem here
