Calling JSP within JBuilder servlet

I am attempting to call a JSP file from within a servlet with
the following code within JBuilder and Tomcat:
getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("jsp1.jsp").forward(req, res);

I get a null exception pointer on the attempt to find the jsp1.jsp file via getRequestDispatcher. I know it needs to exist where the servlet can find it. Where does it need to be placed? There must be a path either in JBuilder or Tomcat that it must be stored. Does anyone know?

I agree. Here's the link:
