HI there.

I am absolutely loving the frontman "framework". Its honestly everything I always wanted to do, many many thanks to Bear Bibeault!

The issue I am currently having is that if I post from a form on a jsp file to the servlet using :

<form name="input" action="command/runTest" method="post">

It runs my TestCommand class as expected but when I redirect the client with commandContext.forwardToView("Index") in that class
it redirects the client as expected but the url changes from "http://localhost:8080/FrontControllerExample/" to "http://localhost:8080/FrontControllerExample/command/runTest"

This means that if I submit again it tries to post to "http://localhost:8080/FrontControllerExample/command/command/runTest" and an exception is thrown.

This does not happen however if i use the redirectToView method.

I am pretty positive I am making some newb mistakes here but for the life of me I cant figure out a solution to the problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
