I was trying it before I posted this question. For some reason I get main jsp url not the one where it was initiated from.

Sorry misunderstood what u wanted.
If you want the URL of the page that called the jsp, check the referer request header.

request.getHeader("referer");

You mean Just in main.jsp :

String ref = request.getHeader("referer");

the referer header is not guarnteed to be there, i think it is dependant on the browser as to whether it is included or not.

You could pass the url as a query parameter when you call main.jsp.

I am trying to accomplish the following thing:

1 It is login page
2 I cannot use cookies or session becuase of client's requirements
3 I get user, password if valid then open main.jsp using javascript
4 in main.jsp I would check if page where it was opened from login.html
5 if it is then continue if not go to login.jsp  

The problem is that I want to check it only first time. I would keep it in  my url but don't want to check it every time page processed
and besides that the url is changing constantly due to application requests.

Is it doable without session variables and cookies ?

Thank you.

Not that I can think of.

Are you using a database? If so you could store some unique key for the user when they logged in and pass that id as a parameter to every page and use that to lookup database to determine if user logged in ok. bit messy though.

How come the client doesn't want to use sessions?
