[opencms-dev] External link to same host:port

Hello Adrian, thanks very much for your suggestion.

I hope, though, that someone knows how to do it without having to revert to coding, because it's something that seems pretty normal: to directly define an EXTERNAL link with an URL in the form needed to access the EXTERNAL resource without interference from OpenCMS.

  Hello Pere,


  The following code snippet should give you a string of the form http://myhost.sample:8000/ . Let us know if it does the work for you.



    CmsObject cms;

    CmsSiteManager.getCurrentSite(cms).getServerPrefix(cms, "/");

  I need to create an OpenCMS External Link for our navigation menu to point to another application in the same server, without specifying the host:port because it must work in different hosts. In a regular html page I can do this with a link of the form:


  <a href="../myOtherApplication">My Link</a>.


  and in a regular jsp with:




  The trouble is that unless I specifically include html://myHost:myPort in the External Link, OpenCms insists in prepending "/opencms/opencms/..." to whatever I put in the Link URL, so it doesn't work.


  Being an EXTERNAL link, shouldn't OpenCms use the URL as defined, without any change? Can someone suggest how to solve this (other than with an ugly patch in the navigation menu building code)?
