Hi,
I have 3 jsp pages...
Page1 is part of application1.
Page1 contains a anchor element which points to page2. Page2 redirects to page3 which is a part of different application, lets say application 2.
(page2 does response.sendRedirect(page3) to redirect to the application2).

My question is how can I find out url of page 2 on page 3 using javascript. Please note that document.referrer in javascript gives url of page1. Also I want to run javascript code only on page3

Any help regarding it will be appreciated.

You cannot do this reliably.

Why do you need to know where you came from? Perhaps a better way can be suggested.
