servlet to servlet

I have a ServletA that forwards requests to ServletB.
ServletA reads a file as a stream and that stream should be passed to ServletB as
inputStream. How can this simpliest be achieved ?
I know that ServletA can open an urlConnection and write to that ?
Is that the only solution ?
thanks in advance

I think you could try to put the stream into session in servletA, get it from session from ServletB and use it as you wish. Maybe I'm missing something, but this should do the trick.

I agree. Here's the link:
