Subject RequestDispatcher.forward() and filters
Date Sat, 10 Nov 2001 22:12:35 GMT

I am trying to figure out what Tomcat does when a filter calls
RequestDispatcher.forward().

Obviously, if this happens, the next filter in the chain doesn't get
called.  The question is, does the forward() method start a new chain
for this new "request", or does the request just happen without any
more filters?

I found a good discussion of this topic here:

http://w6.metronet.com/~wjm/tomcat/2000/Dec/msg00947.html

But this was about 10 months ago, and it was with pre-release Tomcat.
Does anyone know what is the real status on this now?  I'm guessing
the situation hasn't changed?

Thanks
