Hi!
Was looking for an answer for hours now and can't crack this one.

On HolRequests.jsp which lists DB records I am making a post request to update a field in one of the records (via facade).
I'm using a form here:
                      
In the servlet I have:


How can I make the application to run the get request below for the jsp again:


As I'm new to servlets and JSPs, I may be doing something completely wrong here. My debugger observation: I do not get the updated results as the ServletPath still = "changeStatus" when entering the doGet block (why??) and so there's no match with the pattern. Thank you in advance!!

Don't redirect to the JSP, but to its page controller. You should never redirect or link to a JSP; always to its controller. In fact, put the JSPs under WEB-INF so that you cannot accidentally do that.

Please read this article which describes proper structure for Java web apps, and pay particular attention to the PRG pattern.
