How to get full URL which contains # from HttpServletRequest

In my sample application i am displaying some records, based on # am scrolling down to a particular topic. But to edit that message user has to logon. But while constructing destination url in signin pagebased on request object of servlet am not getting the # in url.

URL looks like www.mydomain:8080/SMP/Account/display/topic#M7

public static String getFullURL(HttpServletRequest request) {
StringBuffer requestURL = request.getRequestURL();//**http://xyz:8080/SMP/Account/display/topic**
String queryString = request.getQueryString();

FYI i have a restriction on setting referer.
Is there any other-way to get full url.


You cannot get the url fragment identifier from the HttpServletRequest as its not actually passed along to the server, it is for the client only.

A quick Google for HttpServletRequest fragment identifier should confirm that, including:
