Forwarding A Servlet Response in the URL

Hello, I'm trying to forward some posted variables from form A to this servlet where I am adding one more then forwarding it on. How can I get it to forward and show up in the URL window instead how I'm doing it here with the servlet context?


Thanks for some help

Okay maybe that was a bad way to put it. Here is a simpler version thats easier to answer I think.

is there a way that I can use the
RequestDispatcher.forward(request,response) method to forward a request
to an URL outside the current server?

-thanks, this probably makes more sense.....

this is what I want to know.

I also want to call a servelt one aonther server using getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher(String), but it seemed the String must begin with "/". That means we can only call a relative servlet. I'm still looking for some other way and look for help.
