The java expression consists of getContextPath( ) that return the portion of the request URL and specifies the context of the request. The context  Path comes first in a request URL. It starts with a "/" character but never end with a "/" character. The servlets in the default (root) context, this method returns " The container does not decode string".

<%=request.getContextPath( )%> : The <%=request.getContextPath ( )> is used to return the portion of the request URL and specifies the context of the request.

<h2>Context Path</h2>
<font color="red">The Context Path is:<%=request.getContextPath()%></font>

clarity of the above code
