My understanding is that JSP:FORWARD is translated by into
pageContext.forward(String url, String parm)

So it is just a JSP specific implementation of  javax.servlet.ServletContext
interface that provides javax.servlet.RequestDispatcher where you can
imlement forward(ServletRequest req, ServletResponse res) method.

Additions, corrections??
