Subject Re: response.sendRedirect problem in Tomcat 5.0.18
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2004 13:39:27 GMT
You'll need to structure your code so that you either write to the out stream 
or perform a sendRedirect.  There has never been a version of Tomcat that 
would allow otherwise.  This is the same in PHP, ASP, and I imagine any other 
web scripting language.

A sendRedirect does nothing more than send back a bodyless header with a 
"Location: url"  parameter.

You can't send a header once you've started writing to the body of the 
message.  You also can't write to the body after sending a redirect (which is 
why you need to add a "return" statement just after the redirect).
