Control *does* return -- RequestDispatcher.forward() is a normal Java
method call.

However, the servlet spec prohibits you from modifying the response at this
point.  If Weblogic lets you do this (for instance, by allowing you to add
additional text to the response created by the forwarded-to servlet), then
it is not obeying the spec.
