1. Change <jsp:forward page="/Jigar/jsp/view1.jsp" > to <jsp:forward page="/jsp/view1.jsp" >

2. The browser will still display http://localhost:8080/Jigar/jsp/view.jsp
Forward is transparent to the browser. Server handles forwarding the request to view1.jsp and hence the URL will not change.

Please read through JSP section in J2EE tutorial from Sun. It would provide details on how forward works.

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. Reference..
