I'm new to this. I've learnt theoritically that a servlet chain is when response of one servlet is passed on to the other servlet.. and so on, to form a chain. I seen examples which show me only one servlet. How is a servlet chain accomplished ? Can any one give me material or link to servlet chain with a programmed example?


Thanks in advance

Check out the forward() method of RequestDispatcher.

Btw, the term "chaining" is no longer really in use, supplanted by the term "forwarding".
