OK, what I am trying to do is simple in theory. I have loaded in the browser an app - app1/.
From a servlet in app1 I want to simply redirect to another app (app2 - different context)
- to be loaded in the same browser window. By which means I forward I'm not fussed. Currently
I am using RequestDispatcher or response.sendRedirect from a servlet in app1. But in the window,
app2 appeqars to be loading in the address bar, but app1 is in fact loaded but with broken
image links/error messages etc. So it appears to looking in the right place...just for the
wrong things! 
I have checked docBase for each context in server.xml - they are fine.  Each app runs fine
if loaded from new windows, but when I try to link the two together....trouble. 
Any thoughts please? I am ready to throw in the towel!

It'd difficult from your poast to figure out what you're trying to 
accomplish. The phrase "forward control from one context to another" is 
quite ambiguous:

* Are you trying to create a response that includes output from resources 
from multiple contexts?

* While using one app, do you want to direct the user to pages in a 
different app?

* Are you talking client side or server side?

* Can you give us the scenario you're addressing? Often people ask 
questions that aren't phrased properly, so it's important to understand 
exactly what you're trying to do before going off and suggesting one of a 
hundred different possible answers.


BTW: I would suggest trying not to be "guilty" of stiring interest any 
more. It's not looked fondly upon by those who can most help you. Your 
previous post was not answered because it was ambiguous, so it'd be best 
to include copious information from the beginning (so you don't have to 
wait so long for a reply or cause subject pollution).
