Hi,
When I do: req.getRequestDispatcher(url).forward(req, res), this exception appears:
java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1
What does it mean?
Thanks.

It literally means that a String method such as charAt( n ) has tried to address a position that the String does not have, in this case -1.
Since -1 is returned by String search methods when they don't find a character, I suspect the url string in your call is badly formatted.
