The <dispatcher> element is added to servlet 2.4 specification. I am using servlet 2.3 container. Is there any way to have a work around with this.
I want to invoke the filter on dispatcher FORWARDs in addition to the requests.

Of course there's no way to use 2.4 mechanisms in 2.3. You'll need to do any dispatching in code.
