I think jsp:forward does a post and you want a get
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. bear
