Forwards a client request to an HTML file, JSP file, or servlet for processing.
%> }" />
<jsp:forward page="/servlet/login" />
<jsp:forward> tag forwards the
request object sent to the JSP file to another file for processing. The JSP engine does not process any of the remainder of the JSP file.
If the output from the compiled JSP file is buffered (by using a
page directive with the default value or an explicit size set for
buffer), the buffer is cleared before the request is forwarded. If the output is not buffered (if you used a page directive with
buffer=none), and if anything has been written to the buffer, using
<jsp:forward> results in an
String or an expression representing the relative URL of the file to which you are forwarding the request.
The relative URL looks like a path-it cannot contain a protocol name, port number, or domain name. The URL can be absolute or relative to the current JSP file. If it is absolute (beginning with a /), the path is resolved by your Web or application server.
