I'm using struts
My webapplication contains 5 JSP Pages, all of the pages have a button which corresponds to single action.

How can i know in my Action class that the request came  from which page?, beacause if the calling page is 1 i have to forward to page 2, and like that i have different combinations

Thanks

try getting the headers; i believe it stores a referrer attribute; dont know if this applies for all
apps thoughl. you may want to print out all header names just to be sure

Enumeration e = request.getHeaderNames();

String source = null;

while (e.hasMoreElements())
{
    String key = (String)e.nextElement();
    if (key.equals("referrer"))
    {
        source = request.getHeader(key);
        break;
    }
}
