automatic forward?

I want to make a .jsp page make an automatic request to a servlet when it is called. How do I do this?
My little web application is a simple representation of an online shoppingcart. One page in this application is for viewing previous orders (view.jsp). Now, throughout the whole application there are several forms which all submit their data to a controller servlet. This servlet executes code based on the value held in 'action', a hidden form element. Rather than having a form where I have to click a button to retrieve my orders, I would like to make the view.jsp page automatically forward the request to the servlet when called upon. How do I do this?

Use <jsp:forward> tag in JSP
