If we use sendredirect like that :

res.sendRedirect("SomeURL"); //1
int i = 2; //2
out.println("Value of i =" +i); //3

Then Line (2) & (3) are executed or after line (1) this page is redirected
to other page ?

Can we use both "sendredirect" and "forward" in same page ?

Thanks & Regards:

The lines 2 & 3 will get executed, but nothing will be printed on the response object. You will see the redirected page on the browser.

You cannot forward and redirect from the same servlet. It will throw IllegalStateException.
