RequestDispatcher.forwards() is use to request from a servlet to another resource (servlet, JSP file, or HTML file). and after move this resource Servlet & JSP life cycle is start... mean Servlet call its init method and Jsp call its jspInit method and then call others Method like doGet() or doPost which is defined in that pages.

Correct me if there is something wrong.
Thanks

Now request goes to the someServlet's service method.The service method determines the command (GET,POST,etc)from the request and delegate the call to the doXXX method in SomeServlet.

Thanks Rahul,

The request type is extracted from the request headers.
Now its clear.
