Hi

I have a similar query

a) I have a html with a username form property submitted it to action.jsp
b) action.jsp does some processing . Sets some hidden form properties . And here I want to go to checkuser.jsp page automatically ; I do not want to use form submit here

if we look it completely the user experience is they enter the username in html page and they go to action.jsp (user does not know this ) and then to checkuser.jsp.

How can I do this in JSP?

Thanks a lot for helping..

Cheers
Sandeep

You shouldn't be doing any processing in a JSP. That's a job for a servlet.

Hi thanks for the reply. Can you please suggest me how we can do that in Servlets?

sendRedirect or forward or include. Which of these would carry the current page form properties to another jsp/servlet.

thanks
Sandeep

That greatly depends on what it is you are actually trying to accomplish. All of these mechanisms exist so you can use the appropriate one for the occasion. One size does not fit all.
