hi folks,
i found that requestdispatcher can be obtained from both request object and servletContext. what is the difference in getting from one over the other?
thanks.

Hi
You can pass a relative path to the getRequestDispatcher() method of request object. It will evaluate the path relative to the path of the request. But that is not possible with ServletContext.
Thanks

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
