jsp:forward is not used for submitting a form.

Use pure html Form for submitting and use use the jsp file name in the action attribute of form tag

If you want to go to a different page on submit,
then just change the target tag in your <form
you should not need to use the jsp:forward for that

Yep, the action tag, not the target tag
I agree. Here's the link:
