Hello Friends,
I have a problem.I have a servelt say and a JSP file named EmployeeView.jsp.My servlet is validaing the username and password and based on those results I need to call my JSP file which displays the details of the employee.
How do I call a jsp file from this Servlet??
Can anybody help me??

I use this practice and found useful. I wrote a method called gotoPage in a utility file called and made it static. Whenever I want to route the response to some resource I just call ServletUtilities.gotoPage(....); One more advantage is in goToPage method I use encodeURL. So if I want to encode/de-encode all the routed urls, just change in only one method gotoPage and it is reflected in WHOLE web appln. Also note that the url which we give to gotoPage(...) is relative web url with respect to the web appln.
