Is there a way to get a full url path from portlet request?
For example, if I enter www.mywebsite.com/somevalue, this request seems to get processed by my home page default portlet (let's call it MyHomepagePortlet).
I am looking for a way to get the "www.mywebsite.com/somevalue" value, but I can't find any attribute that carries this information.
Any ideas would be appreciated?
I may not have understood your question because in your example www.mywebsite.com/somevalue I wondered why you didnt say /portal. But one thing you can try inside your portlet doView method is
renderRequest.getScheme() + "://" + renderRequest.getServerName()
