Negative!

To do something like this, you 1) need to get the actual context, then 2) get the request dispatcher for that context to include/forward to the resource. Check this out (no guarantees):


Tada! Compile and be dazzled.

Hi nethaniel,
I read one para in the Servlet 2.4 spec saying.

"Context attributes are local to the JVM in which they were created. This prevents ServletContext attributes from being a shared memory store in a distributed container. When information needs to be shared between servlets running in a distributed environment, the information should be placed into a session"

Now I got totally confused. Is this paragraph information about. please help
