sendRedirect("/foo/stuff.html")

"The forward slash at the begining means root of this web-app".

Either provide the full URL or remove the / from the beginning.

I got the answer from HFSJ errata list.(http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/headservletsjsp/errata/headservletsjsp.confirmed)
It says
"The forward slash at the beginning means "relative to the root of the web container."

Thanks
