Hi All

I've very poor problem. jsp:forward not working. I tried following things.

<jsp:forward page="login.jsp">
</jsp:forward>

RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("login.jsp");
rd.forward(request,response);

It is throwing NullPointerException on Tomcat4.1. I checked rd. It is not null.

But at the same time <%response.sendRedirect("login.jsp");%> is working absolutly fine.

I'm now totally confused.

Here is the error that Tomcat is throwing

i remember having had the same problem.

Please re-check the names of all the html fields which you are accessing in the destination page.check whether they are matching.

check the web.xml file(if you are using one) for the correctness of starting and ending tags.

Best clue:


root cause

java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.apache.jsp.login_jsp._jspService(login_jsp.java:410)

I think the jsp:forward is working properly. There is a problem in login.jsp which throws null pointer exception. Because the stack trace shows the call being transferred to login.jsps service metthod.

>>>at org.apache.jsp.login_jsp._jspService(login_jsp.java:410)

Check the generated servlett for the above line, which could solve the problem. Ensure that the login.jsp works fine when u invoke it separately.

Hope this helps.
