Model 2 approach

I am trying to get familiar with the Model 2 approach. Basically I am confused about how to give the path when the 'controller' servlet switches to a JSP page using Request Dispatcher getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher(address). I have stored the html and jsp files in a subdirectory public_html and the servlet resides in /public_html/servlets/example.
Thank you,

You can refer to your pages with absolute
or relative path
I prefer relative path, because you can change the html server path without change your servlet.
Hope this helps
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
