This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum.
We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line!

Redirect adds a Header to the response (I guess Location) and the browser then redirects the user to the new location right?
Also forward can be used only within the same context.

Now, I have a server running Jetty and need to redirect the user to a
tomcat machine, but I need to add some headers and attributes to the request, how can I do that? With redirect it does not work, and with forward (well, not the same context...)

Best Regards
Author and ninkuma

The request in which you are about to send a response containing the redirect header will go out of scope as soon as the response is dispatched.

So there really is no request to which to can add anything.

You can put query parameters on the redirect URL, which will be turned into request parameters when the browser initiates the redirected request, but that's about the extent of control that you have.
