I am in the middle of reading Marty Hall's "More Servlets and JSPs" and I have reached the end of Chapter 3 with the Travel agent example. In Listing 3.59, he has a big comment in the middle that says: /** Since password is being sent, use POST only. However, * the use of POST means that you cannot forward * the request to a static HTML page, since the forwarded * request uses the same request method as the original * one, and static pages cannot handle POST. Solution: * have the "static" page be a JSP file that contains * HTML only. That's what accounts.jsp is. The other * JSP files really need to be dynamically generated, * since they make use of the customer data. */ Can someone please elucidate on this? I am not quite sure what he is talking about. Thanks.
