forwarding request outside the context

Using <jsp:forward> or RequestDispatcher, I only seem to be able to make requests to servlets or JSP that are in the same context.
I want to take some information from a form, do a little processing magic and then make a request POSTing or GETting to some outside resource.
Any tips, tricks, methods or ideas?
thanks
