Hi,

I just started a web app with login jsp and a servlet. When the login is successful, user should get a welcome message,
other wise login page should be displayed with error message. This is working fine except for one small glitch.

my login URl is
loclahost:8080/webApp/Login.jsp

when the servlet is forwarding, the url in the address bar is displayed as
http://it-laptop2:8080/webApp/servlet/controlerservlet

insted of
loclahost:8080/webApp/Login.jsp

Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

I am using Tomcat 6 server and my servlet code looks like this.....

As this is not Tomcat-specific, it has been moved to the Servlets forum.

A forward doesn't change the URL in the address window at all.
Can you post the page containing the login form?

As already mantioned, forwarding occurs on the backend and the user is not aware that it happened since teh URL remains the same. i.e in this case controllerServlet.

Sicne the foward does not change the URL, it is stying the same on the browse. I guess I was concerned for no reason. As mentioned earlier, the app is working fine

Thank ya'all for the help.
