Accessing Servlet from different war Files

I have two applications called A.war and B.war.

There is a servlet available in A.war which on validating parameters dispatches the call to servlet in B.war

Please let me know if can be possible

You want to use a request made in one application in a completely separate web application?

Major design flaw. If the code is to be re-used it should be included in both applications. This should be build-time, not run-time sharing

Well if you really want it that way you can just import information using
<c:import url="...."/>

However you should really put those servlets in the same application, since you can't forward requests to the other servlet using RequestDispatcher unless they are in the same web application context

I agree. Here's the link:
