Redirecting to 3 different pages

Hi all,
My aim is to write a servlet which pops up a jsp page( first.jsp) in the beginning. Since my client is using Apache JServ, we are using JSDK2.0 and since using sendRedirect method. In the servlet after displaying the first.jsp I am continuing with my other procedure calls, that is doing a JDBC stored procedure call. Then depending upon the result of the Stored Procedure, if it is yes, I have to redirect to another page(Sucess.jsp ) and if failure to a second one(fail.jsp)
I tried using sendredirect again, but the effort is in vain.
Can anyone help me please.
This is an urgent requirement
Thanks,
Maya

You might try this not so pretty, but effective method...
load (first page - Welcome.html)
then initiate your calls to database (from button click, javascript timer, etc.), forward to a "hidden jsp" that displays nothing but database stuff and sets vars
then pass to handler, evaluate vars and re-direct to the possible output.
Remember that once the headers are written, you'll be limited with the methods that you can use for a re-direct.

Do you have any sample code for sending to a hidden jsp ?
If so can you send it to me at google_n@hotmail.com ?

Hi Frazier,
Thanks for the suggestion to redirect to a hidden jsp.
I tried redirecting to a secong jsp and did the coding so that the second jsp calls the database validation servlet. After the validation this servlet easily calls the success and fail pages.
Thanks a lot

Hello --
I know this post is somewhat old, but I think it applies to my situation. Please post the sample code for forwarding to a hidden jsp.
Also, what does:
"Remember that once the headers are written, you'll be limited with the methods that you can use for a re-direct."
mean? Please explain.
Thanks in advance!
