  1. How to capture user navigation (5 messages)

    Hi

    I have an application that provides links to external web application. Is there a way that I can capture the links that the user is navigating from my application. Maybe using a frame where the user has its external application and from another frame capturing the URLs. Is this possible?

    I'd think the best approach is to simply not provide direct links to external URLs have some kind of dispatcher servlet or action that records the destination chosen and then sends the user off. How you do this will depend of course on the web framework that yo are using (if any)

    Thanks for the quick reply

    Yes, this will work for the first URL. But once I get to the first page of the external application I can't capture the user navigation.

  5. Hi

    What if you have the URL in a frame and via JavaScript try to capture the URL. Is this possible?

    And I'm glad of that - once the user is out of your domain and into an external site then where they go from there should not really be of interest to you.
    What's the use case that requires you to track browser usage in this way?
