hello rancher,


The ServletContext.getRequestDispatcher method takes a String argument describing a path within the scope of the ServletContext. This path must be relative to the root of the ServletContext and begin with a '/'. The method uses the path to look up a servlet, using the servlet path matching rules, wraps it with a RequestDispatcher object, and returns the resulting object.
If no servlet can be resolved based on the given path, a RequestDispatcher is provided that returns the content for that path.

what does mean it?? If no servlet can be found by the specified, what does it return??



Thnaks
