Hi,

My web application is such that various other web application redirect to it. I want to add a back button to the page so that which ever client cam e to this page i can go back to that client. Does the Request Object in JSP give me any information of where the request originated.

Kind Regards

Another question. I have 2 web application running on different servers . The first web app redirects t the second web app. In the first one i have the following code


In this second application for the body on load a call a java script function


The param variable is null. Whats going wrong? I might add that both aps are in JSF and the first piece of code is written in a backing bean.

Kind Regards,

request attributes arent shared across web application, try using the param1 as a query string parameter, and then in second application, use request.getParameter() to get the value of the param1

That was a obvious solution. But i did not not want the user to see these. Is these not way to hide this information in the request object ?

I don't think that there is any other way to send data when redirecting. I am not sure though,
