Hello,
I build a servlet that use the requestDispatcher , setAttribute methods to forward the visitors to another sites and sending confidential parameters like password .
But it seems that it doesn't work correctly because my jserv is 1.0.2 and in my jserv.log i have the following error message : setattribute method not found and same message to the requestDispatcher .
How can i make this scenario using the SendRedirect method .
Please advise me any hint or solution about this issue .
Thank you in advance,
Best regards .
Fouad .

You can only forward to another servlet. So RequestDispatcher won't do you any good if you are trying to get to a non-servlet.
But you can always do

Just to clarify, JSPs are servlets too, so you can forward to servlets & JSPs, but not any other kind of file. Use the response.sendRedirect()

to get even MORE specific... you can only forward or include other files within the same web app.
.... granted, if you want to forward/include something in a different webapp you can do that... you just have to do a lil extra work and get a reference to the other web app (currentServletContext.getContext(uri) and then get a reference to THAT web app's RequestDispatcher...
but anyway --- yeah, you're gonna have to use sendRedirect() if you want to go to an .asp

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
