I have two on context in the tomcat 4.1 server.
When I run the application in first context.
(e.g) login validation should be done in the application in the other
context and the application in the Second context should be loaded
How can in do this.

You can get the ServletContext of another web application by calling


where uripath is the context path of the other web application. You can subsequently call getRequestDispatcher(path) on this context and forward the request to the appropriate resource on the second context.

Is this what you are trying to do?

I agree. Here's the link:
