Subject RE: servlets that forward to other servlets
Date Thu, 23 Jan 2003 19:23:59 GMT
You get a request dispatcher from the request object and then call the
forward or include methods on it.  I just tend to short-hand things with the
work dispatch (since it's a request dispatcher and I only typically use it
for forwards).
