In HF book i saw the example for RequestDispatcher forwarding to JSP.
How do we forward request to Servlet?

Is it something like this?

RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("MyServlet");

rd.forward(request, response);

Let me know if this is right??

RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("/MyServlet");

Yeah! what you said is right.But you need to do little change with this.While mentioning out servletalias name you need to give the root directory as "/MyServlet".Also before using Requestdispatcher, be sure that you get the corresponding servletcontext of particular web application(i.e., within the web server where it is used to store servlets).

You can use RequestDispatcher with servlets too, or any other resource for that matter. The arguement you pass to the getRequestDispatcher method is the path to whatever resource you want to use.
