what is redirecting? Is it the way to forward the request to the other servlet or JSP. BTW I know that RequestDispatcher object can be used to forward or include a Servlet or JSP. So what is this URL redirecting?
A redirect send sa message back to the browser to make a new request using the redirect URL that you provide. It is different from a forward or include in that it results in a new request which will not implicitly carry over any paramters or attributes from the original request. hth, bear
Yah Mini Its a way to forward request to another JSP or Servlet.. It is mostly used in the Despatcher model (N-tier) of the JSP.. The basic moto behind redirection is to separate the business logic from the presentation and include as less java code as possble in the presnetation layer.
