would result in the Logging filter not being invoked by client requests to the ProductServlet, nor underneath a request dispatcher forward() call to the ProductServlet, but would be invoked underneath a request dispatcher include() call where the request dispatcher has a name commencing ProductServlet.
Now my question is why will the Logging Filter not being invoked by client requests to ProductServlet.
Please clarify. Also I have not used Filters in actual programming and want to know how many questions should I expect on it.
Thanks in advance.

As the dispatcher mechanism is mentioned as "include" only include calls will trigger the filter.It will not be invoked for normal client requests.
