when ever you want forward request to any jsp or other servlet from servlet will give some thing like this.>!

RequestDispather rd=request.getRequestDispather(/EmpDisplay.jsp);

rd.forward(request,response);

it means some how servlet container is running our application in main application folder(directory) of our directory..!

is it correct...?

Thanks for reading and Helping.!

If I understand you correctly, the answer is "yes."

If the path passed to getRequestDispather starts with a "/", then the location is relative to the root of the WAR archive.

Not always. That may be true for JSPs, but servlets are mapped according to elements in the deployment descriptor and are not addressed relative to the file system.
