    How to get current page URL from backing bean?


    You can get a reference to the HTTP request object via FacesContext like this:


    FacesContext fc = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
    HttpServletRequest request = (HttpServletRequest) fc.getExternalContext().getRequest();
    and then use the normal request methods to obtain path information. Alternatively, 

    will return you the name of the current JSP (JSF view IDs are basically just JSP path names).
