Subject RE: Is their a bug in Tomcat with the RequestDispatcher.forward(url) method?
Date Wed, 06 Dec 2000 22:13:27 GMT
A forward is an internal redirect, the client never sees it (and therefore
never updates the URL in the status bar of the browser).

Tomcat is working properly, and it sounds like Weblogic is doing a redirect
and is broken.
