Hi,

I am using request.getServerName(), to get the server name through servlets. (where request is the request object). Please let me know how can I get the servername instead of using this request object.

Waiting for reply.

Regards,
R S

The request object encapsulates the http request into a nice wrapper. Have a look at the source code and see how they do it.

Actually i want to get the complete path.
Say I am calling my page as :
http://server1111:8080/ABC/index.html

Presently I am using getServerName method of request object to get
server name as "server".
port as "8080"
Path as "ABC"

Now instead of using this request object I want to get the servername using some other way, how can I do that.

Waiting for reply.

> Actually i want to get the complete path

you can use:

String uri = request.getRequestURI();

There is no alternative, the server name is part of the request.
How could you get it from anything other than the request.
