How to get portal navigation path in English Locale ?

Hello Experts,

I need to fetch the current navigation path only in English, even if the locale of the portal in changed, in my JSPDyn project in NWDS.

I am using the following Javascript code for the job:

var pathArray = EPCM.getSAPTop().LSAPI.AFPPlugin.model.getCurrentSelectedPath();

var path = pathArray[0].getTitle() ;

for(var index = 1; index < pathArray.length; index++)


path = path +">" + pathArray[index].getTitle();


Since the code should be called in a JavaScript function I am unable to use the NavigationEventsHelperService API.

Please suggest if there is any way by which I can get the navigation path in EN Locale using EPCM API.

Thanks in advance.

    1. Create a new servlet type component inside your portal component DC : -

    <component name="AjaxServlet">


    <property name="ClassName" value="com.test.nodetranslation.AjaxServlet"/>

    <property name="ComponentType" value="servlet"/>

    <property name="SafetyLevel" value="authenticated_user"/>



    2. Inside this servlet, write below code to read a URL parameter, say, pageLaunchURL, and get it's title in EN: -

    String launchURL = request.getParameter("pageLaunchURL");

    IAdminBase adminBaseObj = (IAdminBase)iCtx.lookup(launchURL);

    IAttributeSet attrSet = (IAttributeSet)adminBaseObj.getImplementation( IAdminBase.ATTRIBUTE_SET );

    String objClass = attrSet.getAttribute(OBJECT_CLASS_PROPERTY);


    String objectTitleEN = attrSet.getAttribute("", Locale.ENGLISH);



    3. Call this servlet from your JSP using ajax call: -

    String servletUrl;



    servletUrl = ApplicationUtil.encodeURL(componentRequest,"");


    servletUrl = "<%=servletUrl%>";

    servletUrl +="?path="+iViewLaunchURL;

    var oXMLHttp = XMLHttpFactory.createXMLHttp();

    var resp;

    oXMLHttp.onreadystatechange = function (){


    resp= oXMLHttp.responseText;


    }"GET", servletUrl, false);


    In 'resp' object, you'll receive iView's title in EN language that was returned by Servlet.

    Hope it helps.
