Weird behaviour when calling a jsp page thinks its a servlet

I have a JSP Page PageC which calls another jsp page displayRow.jsp through the use of a form.

<FORM action="displayRow.jsp" method="post">

When I directly call pageC, it calls displayRow.jsp with no problems.

but when I use another route

PageA calls ServletA which forwards to PageB which calls ServletB which forwards to PageC which calls displayRow.jsp i get the error message

The requested resource (/servlet/displayRow.jsp) is not available.

Has anyone got an idea of what might be going on under the hood.

Thanks for any help Tony

Because of the way you write

<FORM action="displayRow.jsp" method="post">


the browser requests the jsp from the same base it used to get the servlet.
Thats why it is looking for "/servlet/displayRow.jsp"
You should specify the action URL more completely. You should also read about why using the invoker servlet (implied by "/servlet") is a bad idea here at the ranch FAQ.

Thanks William,

I kind of guessed that may have been the problem, pages are working fine now.

Thanks again.
