One has to know HTML as well as Java to do JSPs correctly.
How do you tell a <FORM> what to do when it's submitted? By specifying the resource URL action in the ACTION = "..." attribute. It could be the URL for a CGI script, another JSP or (drum roll...) a Servlet!

Clicking button is a client-level event, but jsp:forward is server proccessed. And you can't call jsp page by button on the page without sending form (or other request) to your server.
I agree. Here's the link:
