It contains methods such as getRequestContextPath.

Subject: getting information about caller-url


when starting my application I have to distinguish between the
different sites from where the user can call the application.

Theese urls are outside application.

Can somebody give me a hint how i can read the url from where the
user is calling?

Thanks Georg
