I think i have a problem with requestdispatcher and forward method as we are migrating our project from tomcat 4.1 to tomcat 5.5.
The code written works fine with tomcat 4.1 but with tomcat 5.5 after the we are calling the getRequestDispatcher(path).forward(req,res) method the requested jsp should be displayed on the browser, which is not happening.
Can you guide me in this regard as I couldn't pinpoint the exact error location.
What is happening? Have you looked at the tomcat logs to see if something is going wrong?
I, personally, didn't notice any differences in requestDispatcher handling between 4.1 and 5x and I rely on it a lot. If nothing is showing up in your logs, maybe you can put together a small code example that shows this problem and post it.
