Hi, all

When I type (server name)/home.jsp, I need to show a popup message: This is our home. How can I get the URL text?
For example:
If URL = "(server name)/home.jsp"
  alert ("This is our home");

Thanks

Better to just have your jsp include the js to call your alert when the window is loaded (onLoad) if the url matches.

your specific code can be like this:

<% if (request.getServerName().equals("www.yoursite.com") && request.getRequestedURI().equals("/home.jsp")) { %>
<script>
  alert("Welcome to the Home Page!");
</script>
<% } %>

or do it purely based on the URI as indicated above:

<% if (request.getRequestedURI().equals("/home.jsp")) { %>
<script>
  alert("Welcome to the Home Page!");
</script>
<% } %>


or you can do it in JavaScript as indicated above:

<script>
 if (location.href == "http://www.yoursite.com/home.jsp")
    alert("Welcome to the Home Page!");
</script>

HTH,
CJ
