my code is :

whenever i am calling this servlet code from my jsp file :

it is showing "servlet exception"

showing this a 100-200 times then a "stackoverflow error".

if i put a stacktrace , it is giving :

is there a method to get the root cause of the servlet exception , how can i know the exact cause of the exception.
it looks as if a infinite loop is at line 10 in the servlet .
please help me.

The significant point is:
showing this a 100-200 times then a "stackoverflow error".

You have created circular logic with your forwarding which just keeps calling recursively until the stack runs out of room.
