Hi all,

I have a doubt in servlet dispatcher. I need to forward to another application from my servlet. But I know if we use response.sendredirect() the request object will be lost. But I need the request object as well in the forwarded page. That is something like the below code. But the below code won't work.



If I use



the request object will be lost.

Please help me to forward to another application with the request object

Why do you need the Request object?

Are you storing any data and expecting in the other servlet/jsp?

As I know anything of this sort is not available in Weblogic/Websphere/OracleAS.

Between Udhaya are you trying or expecting a solution wrt Tomcat.
If Yes then whatever seetharaman has said is right.Just follow the document.

Help me to solve this issue

Honestly you cann't do that with RequestDispatcher if context has to be shared..
What you can do is to keep a flag to say the user is authenticated in the database.
And have a filter in the other application which retrieves the Login information depending on the flag.
Otherwise throw back to login.

hope this helps...

Hi Vinoth,

The example says how to dispatch a request to the defined URL within the context(single application).
But here the question is how to set data and dispatch a request to a resource available in other application.

With straight forward its not achievable.

This is not possible though you can do it by using some tricks (serialization probably), but still it shows flaws in your design. Inter communication should be based on request parameters only, other application should not be waiting for whole request object.

Yes, we can encrypt the data before we send putting aside the limitation we have with the content length.

otherwise feasible...
