<jsp:forward page="../err.jsp?#CA">
<jsp aram name"title" value=<%=title%>\>
I try to a bookmark in the forward page, but it can't work.
Can I use the anchor in the forward page ?

I think jsp:forward does a post and you want a get. Therefore, you will need to use response.sendRedirect to place something on the URL.

A forward cannot change the method of the request. If the original request was the result of a GET, the forward cannot change that.
A forward does not specify a URL to forward to, but rather a wb applicaton resource that the current request will be forwarded to. The URL that initiated the request is not changed, so any anchor must be on the original URL.
A redirect does initiate a new request.
