RequestDisptacher include() and forward()

Just a question:
I have two servlets and one jsp; they are:
ControlServlet will use dispatcher.include("IncludeServlet"). IncludeServlet stores a string object by way of request.setAttribute("key", "value"); ControlServlet regains control again and use dispatcher.forward("/forward.jsp").
My question is, is the string object is still stored in the request object when control is passed to forward.jsp? What i mean is, can forward.jsp use <%= request.getAttribute("key") %> and expect to see "value" on its page?
