Hi,
I am working on JBoss 3.2.1.
I have a module Validation which has a servlet SystemController.java
Code:

HttpSession session = request.getSession(true);
System.out.println(loggerIdentity);
//System.out.println(postedAt);
session.setAttribute("LoggerIdentity", loggerIdentity);
session.setAttribute("PostedAt",postedAt);
RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("../InformationSystem/ISController");
System.out.println(rd);
rd.forward(request, response);




This servlet calls another servlet ISController, in InformationSystem module.
But when I print rd it comes null.
Can anyone please tell me how to call the ISController .
Abhishek.

quote from API:
see API Doucumentation:
The pathname specified may be relative, although it cannot extend outside the current servlet context. If the path begins with a "/" it is interpreted as relative to the current context root. This method returns null if the servlet container cannot return a RequestDispatcher.

Saying in other words - tell us at least the context root of your currently servlet. And then It will be moe easy to answer.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
