Question From ScwcdHints..?

From ScwcdHints :

A <jsp:forward> effectively terminates the current page. Nothing before the <jsp:forward> or after the <jsp:forward> is written to the response! It is not the same when using a requestDispatcher.forward().

Does it mean, if I use requestdispatcher to forward request to another web component, the output before calling next component or after calling next component will be displayed as output..?

Clarify me please..

from the specs,

a jsp : forward effectively terminates the execution of the current page

This means that if you do something other than printing after forwarding (for example, committing data to the database), it is not executed.
