Java Servlet FAQ


How do you retrieve extra path information?


Use the following HttpServletRequest methods to retrieve the extra path information:

Method
Description
public String getPathInfo()gets the extra path information
public String getPathTranslated()gets the fully qualified path of the file on the server

For example, if you have the URL:

http://server:8080/servlet/ServletName/MyPath/MyFile.data?nameparam=John+Smith

getPathInfo() returns "/MyFile.data"
getPathTranslated() could return "c:\JavaWebServer\html\MyPath\MyFile.data"
