Dears,
I have small problem, I have my web application deployed on SUN ONE application server and working fine, it is now moved behined iplanet gateway which is changing the URLs of images and forms, ..... to something secured like this.

Example:
Before gateway:
http://servername ort/context/images/hello.swf

After gateway:
https://gatewayname/http://servername ort/context/images/hello.swf

I use root relative context path in all my application, and I used to get the context name and append it to my code as something like this:
<PARAM NAME="Src" VALUE="<%= contextPath %>/images/flashs/movie.swf">

but I found that th gateway doesn't change these to the https mode at all, so the swf file never appears, so I want to get the full absolute path from serverside in a variable and make it
<PARAM NAME="Src" VALUE="<%= absolutePath %>/images/flashs/movie.swf">

Is there any API that does this so I can use it or any other suggestion?

This problem also persists with IBM access manager.

Thanks for yr help
