Forward servlets

Hi there,

I have a question about forwarding a link to a servlet. My web page generates dynamically HTML code for servlets. My idea is to dynamically generate code to show all pictures in my tree.

I have no problems to figure out the pictures in the tree. I can dynamically generate them as a link.

My problem occurs, when I want to load them in a single window. I don't want to generate one html page for each picture to display. I want to call one servlet and just show this selected picture in it. Therfore I need to forward a value with the link in which I call the servlet. How is this possibile?


Rough: Servlet A has a link of Servlet B. The link in A is dynamic generated and unique. The unique value has to be transmitted to Servlet B. With this information I can then load the picture! How can I forward it?

Best regards and thanks in advance

Joe

How do normal HTML pages create multipl images in a page? Just think about it. Your IMG tag has to use a SRC that points to the servlet that will generate the picture with a parameter that indicates which picture to generate.
src="/imageservlet?uniquevalue=xyz123"
