requestContext request url doesn't return the full URL for me. Here's what I ended up doing:
| url request |
applicationUrl ifNil: [
request := self requestContext request.
url := request url withoutQuery.
(self application url relativeTo: url) do: [ :each |
url path removeLast ].
applicationUrl := 'http://' , request host , url asString ].
Then my WAComponent subclass just delegates to 'session applicationUrl'.
I have some objects that aren't WAObject descendants at all, so I made a WAObject subclass called ARPApplicationConfig, which I added applicationUrl as a class method to, and then it uses the singleton pattern to create a new instance and delegate applicationUrl to that instance. So in my other objects that need access to the URL, I can just call 'ARPApplicationConfig applicationUrl'.
Thanks everyone for the input. I'll report back if I run into any problems with it.

I found WAApplication#url which sent me on an interesting journey...because when I did "self halt" inside of a WAComponent subclass and ran "self application" then I get a WARequestContextNotFound error, although apparently that's only when I launch a debugger.

How can I get the full URL? I don't want to hardcode it...I assume I should be able to get the base URL of my application from somewhere but I'm not sure.
