What is the difference between
RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher().forward();

and


RequestDispatcher rd = getServletContext.getRequestDispatcher().forward();

rd of servletContext takes a path relative to the current servlet whereas that of request takes an absolute path i.e you have to provide complete path in case of rd of request type.
