I had initially posted this doubt in
's forum. I learned this is the more appropriate place for the question.
I have a question regarding invoking a resource from other application in
Consider, there are 2 web applications viz., WebApplication1 and WebApplication2.
WebApplication1 has Servlet1 and WebApplication2 has Servlet2.
How can we forward the request to Servlet2 (in WebApplication2) from Servlet1 (in WebApplication1).
In Servlet1 we can write,
RequestDispatcher rd=request.getRequestDispatcher("..."); rd.forward(request,response);
I think we have to play with ServletContext. Somehow we have to get the ServletContext of WebApplication2 in WebApplication1.
in the web application have reference to the Servlet Context.
Does Tomcat maintain "something" as a reference to all the Servlet Contexts?
Any ideas are welcome.
Thanks for your time and consideration.

Please don't post the same question in two places. Ask a staffer to move the original.
I have taken care of that for you.
It would have been fine had you pointed out that you are looking for cross-context dispatching, but you just re-posted the same general question.
