I have 2
called TestServlet1 and TestServlet2.
In the first
, I write either of the following statements that would forward the page to TestServlet2.
dispatch = request.getRequestDiaspatcher("TestServlet2");
dispatch = request.getRequestDiaspatcher("/TestServlet2");
Could you please tell me if there is any difference between the above statements. Does that slash ("/") make any difference to anything?

A path beginning with "/" is relative to the application context, whereas a path not beginning with "/" is relative to the current request.
Application : /myapp
Request : /myapp/registerUser
If you forward to "/home", the request will map to "/myapp/home". If you forward to "home", the request will map to "myapp/registerUser/home".

What is the difference between requestdispatcher and sendredirect?
Call servlet from java class and redirect to jsp page
