There are two ways of getting a requestDispatcher :
1. RequestDispatcher view = request.getRequestDispatcher("result.jsp");
Here i can also use RequestDispatcher view = request.getRequestDispatcher("/result.jsp");
2. RequestDispatcher view = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/result.jsp");
Here can i use RequestDispatcher view = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("result.jsp") or would it give me an error..saying the location has to start from root ??;

you get a RequestDispatcher in two ways from the request or from the context. With the
context you MUST include the foward slash because you can't specify a path relative to the current resource (the one that received this request.
Hope this helps.
I agree. Here's the link:

HTTP Status 500
damn the requestDispatcher
