I have written a servlet that forwards the request to some other page using sendRedirect() and Location header . The servlet is properly written as mentioned in the book. Now i just want to know that suppose :-
I want that any request to www.abc.com should get redirected to www.xyz.com, then how my servlet will get invoked. i.e. users will be using www.abc.com which will open www.abc.com/index.htm and not my servlet, how can i get my servlet invoked from www.abc.com.

you can set default page of your abc.com to the servlet which will redirect it to xyz.com
you can set 404 error to the same servlet so any request for abc.com/dir01/page1.htm will also be directed to xyz.com.
But why do you want to take so much pain ? You[your service provider] can simply point both URL to single IP address.
