I am trying to redirect a request made to servlet "b" but instead servlet b does get called . Is there anything wrong with redirecting this way in a filter

Is the filter actually being invoked?

Since you're not calling chain.doFilter(request, response) the servlet shouldn't be called at all. I'm with Bear on this one; make sure the filter is called in the first place.
