Thats what I thought.

but when I call::

RequestDispatcher disp =
and URL =

disp returns a null.

I can cut and paste the URL from the error message to the browser and it
works ok.

Hi, Randy --

Offhand, I'd suggest fully-qualifying the URL, e.g.,

   String URL = "http://localhost/foo/x.html";

My recollection (such as it is) is that Tomcat takes
/name as relative to the current webapp; I *think* that
fully-qualifying the URL will get around this.

Subject: redirect to a static page from tomcat to apache


Is there anyway to do a forward from a servlet in tomcat to a static page
that apache only knows.
apache knows that /foo is /home/foo.

but when the servlet executes and does the following(see snippet below),
Tomcat does not know where /foo is mapped to. If I set up a context in
server.xml it will work. But then for my app it gets more complicated ,
because x.html is a frame that calls two cgi programs. And of course tomcat
doesn't know about these guys.

So what are my options?

IS there way to set up a cgi-bin directory under tomcat?
