You could try request.getRequestURI() though I'm not sure that would be good practice. If your two pages are actually doing different things then, from an application design point of view, it makes more sense to have two separate actions, e.g. (very generally) page1.jsp?action=page1_submit and page2.jsp?action=page2_submit. That way you don't need to worry about which page generated the request. You'd just use request.getParameter("action") and then forward appropriately according to the action.

As Julian Said use a hidden variable with some "xxx" name and assign different values depending on the page submit to a servlet

request.getParameter("xxx");

and then depending on the value u forwarding to different pages.....

Hi

Simplyfying Satish's solution:

In jsp1 define <hidden name="source" value="jsp1">
In jsp21 define <hidden name="source" value="jsp2">

and following thing in servlets method

String redirect=request.getParameter("source");

if(redirect!=null && redirect.equals("jsp1"))
redirect where ever you want
else
if(redirect!=null && redirect.equals("jsp2"))
again go where ever you like

hope this helps

Cheers
