Working on tag support for this blog, I've cut a little sample code out of a Java servlet, and I'm showing it below. I was looking at the HttpServletRequest, and was curious about the difference between
request.getRequestURI(), so I created this demo code. Here's the example code from the servlet:
String pathInfo = request.getPathInfo(); String pathTrans = request.getPathTranslated(); String uri = request.getRequestURI(); System.err.println("pathInfo: " + pathInfo); System.err.println("pathTrans: " + pathTrans); System.err.println("uri: " + uri);
And here's the sample output from the servlet, running under Tomcat on my MacBook Pro:
pathInfo: /java+mac+foo pathTrans: /Users/al/tomcat-4.1.31/webapps/blog/tag/java+mac+foo uri: /blog/tag/java+mac+foo
I forgot to mention, the URL I hit to generate this output was
There’s just one person behind this website; if this article was helpful (or interesting), I’d appreciate it if you’d share it. Thanks, Al.
Is the pathTrans output correct? I think it should be /Users/al/tomcat-4.1.31/webapps/blog/tag/java+mac+foo. Anyway this is a great example, thx :)
You are right, and I just corrected this. Thanks!
