jsp:forward issue

I am having an issue with the jsp:forward tag.

I forward say from page1 to page 2. I have a javascript function decalred in the head of page 2 which I
call from the body of page2. But I get a javascript function not found error.

Also there are certain texts and buttons that are displayed on page 2 taken from page 1.

What do I need to do so that the page2 does not get any content from page1 and to include the
javascript to call in page2.

If you don't want the output of both pages, why are you forwarding?
