Subject Re: Traversing up a directory using RequestDispatcher
Date Fri, 17 Sep 2004 12:20:39 GMT
if you're forwarding from the "ChargeCard" directory, you just have to 
include only the name of the page in the forward directive (e.g. 
"something.jsp" or "./something.jsp").... the trailing backslash is 
directly referring the root context of "this" host
