What is the "currentURL" of a Web service?

What do you mean with the "currentURL"? If you want to call a webservice, then you must know the address of the webservice beforehand. Just like you have to know somebody's phone number if you want to call them. Didn't the provider of the webservice tell you what the address of it is?

Or do you mean something else? In that case please explain in more detail what you're looking for.

The Webservice expects an Current URL as a parameter...ie from where the request was made to the webservice...I hope i cleared your doubt

The webservice expects the CurrentURL as a parameter.ie from where the Service has been invoked.

Do you mean something like the client's IP address, or hostname? Because, generally, the client that calls a webservice, doesn't have a URL.

The WebService is expecting the following params

String test = obj.getUrl(serviceID,sourceID,clientID,contractID,sourcePID,getCurrentURL(),userHostName,userHostAddress);

I have all other information except for the CurrentURL()

I hope i cleared your doubt.

Shouldn't the documentation for the service tell you which parameters it expects?

Ah, that looks like the client is sending its own url as a parameter to the service. See if InetAddress.getLocalHost() does what you need.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
