I have two *.jsp files (first.jsp and second.jsp) in the same directory and I need redirect to second.jsp from first.jsp.
I try "forward()" and "sendRedirect()" methods.

I get this error message.

Tell me please, what's wrong?
I use tomcat 4.0.3.
Thank You.

if you are doing this within a web application, putting the / before the name of the name of the page will redirect it to look in the ROOT directory, so the browser will be looking at
http://localhost/index1.jsp even though you have loaded
try removing the forward slash
