1. When a servlet forward a incoming request to say a JSP any code i write after the forward call is redundant?
2. If the servlet ask the browser to issue a seprate request at redirection how are the request and response objects preserved?

Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

1) Any code that tries to writ to the output after is forward is of no use.
2) No they are not preserved for a fresh browser request (sendRedirect).
