i am having a form and in the action page i am redirecting to the same form using JSP FORWARD tag.It gets forward,but the URL has not been changed to form page and is remaining in the same action page.Is there any method to be used for the forward tag?.
Looking for the response.

Hi Yegappan
The forward works on the server side and not the client.Thats why you can't see the changes.I am not very sure but I don't think there is a solution to this.

Just a thought but if you want to actually change the users URL in a redirect, just do a jsp redirect to an html page with a script block that has a single line of javascript redirecting them. We use this kind of thing all the time if we need to close a popup window and redirect in the main window.

I used a script block and it works well.
Thanks Ben.
