    Why does request URI change between processAction and doView

    John Gerevich Newbie

      We are calling an action url:
      https://mine.com/authsec/portal/myportal/mypage/myportletWindow?action=1&myparam=myvalue

      We are checking the underlying HttpServletRequest in the processaction and the doview methods:

      HttpServletRequest req = (HttpServletRequest) PolicyContext.getContext("javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest");
      


      We print the path info for debugging:
      log().info("PATH INFO in processAction: +req.getPathInfo()+"?"+req.getQueryString());
      log().info("PATH INFO in doView: +req.getPathInfo()+"?"+req.getQueryString());
      


      Under JBoss Portal 2.7.0.CR1 we get:
      PATH INFO in processAction: /portal/myportal/mypage/myportletWindow?action=1&myparam=myvalue
      PATH INFO in doView: /portal/myportal/mypage/myportletWindow?action=1&myparam=myvalue

      Under JBoss Portal 2.7.2 we get:
      PATH INFO in processAction: /portal/myportal/mypage/myportletWindow?action=1&myparam=myvalue
      PATH INFO in doView: /portal/myportal/mypage/myportletWindow?action=e&windowstate=normal&mode=view

      notice the change in the path info we get under 2.7.2 from doView method.

      What happened, why doesn't 2.7.0.CR1 and 2.7.2 react the same way? What can we do to get the path info from doView as well?
