I dont think that its practically possible to get any re-direction done without the request object.
Just forward to jsp page from java class
Without the request/response object , how will you inform the container to forward the request to a JSP file. "What" will you forward ? When you perform a redrection or even a page forward, you tell the container to do that for you by calling the response object. Reponse is the 'entity' which will forward your flow.
I think you need to provide us with more information as to what are you trying to achieve , then maybe we can guide you further as to what can be done and what can't .
