All :
Is there any to forward to a new JSP ( lets says Test2.jsp ) without passing Query string parameters from another JSP ( lets says Test1.jsp ).
But the limitation is
1) i should not use response.sendReidrect() method
2) The redirect should not pass the Query string parameters from original request to new JSP

I am trying to use RequestDispatcher.redirect(request,response) , but it is passing the Query string parameters to new JSP.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Use this:

<jsp:forward  .......>
       <jsp:param name="param1"  value="value1"/>
       <jsp:param name="param2"  value="value2"/>

</jsp:forward>

Anthony,
<jsp:forward  .......> is also passing Query string parameters from original request to New JSP. I don't want to pass the query string parameters to new JSP.

I can't see any documented way around this (though I don't have as much experience with Servlets/JSP as some of the other experts here).

divvela, could you elaborate a bit about why you need to strip the parameters?  Some insight might allow one of us to see a different way of approaching the problem.

jimmack,
I have two JSP's Test1.jsp and Test2.jsp. We will get a request to Test1.jsp with some query string parameters
like this http://server/test1.jsp?par1=1&par2=2....etc
Whenever one of the QueryString parameter(par1,par2 etc....) values are not in the form we expect our JSP will throw ILLEGALARGUMENTEXPECTION . Now what want todo is,
whenever we get the ILLEGALARGUMENTEXPECTION expection because of those query string values we want to redirect it to a Test2.jsp without Querystring values.
I can do it using response.sendRedirect(). But our code somehow does not allow todo this.
So i need a way to redirect it to Test2.jsp from Test1.jsp by stripping off QUery string parameters . Hope i have explained it in a better way. Let me know if you have further more questions .. Thanks you very much for your response.

The query string will appear as this

http://server/test1.jsp?par1=1&par2=2....etc

if your <form method="get">.  Use "post" instead.

 The request from a software on the client machine. Its not a website . So i cannot change it to Post method.

I would suggest you to consider what other experts have suggested, especially I can think of any reason why response.sendRedirect cannot be used.
BUT, if you must to this, there is actually a way to do it.
you'll need to define a java class which implements HttpServletRequest interface:

import java.util.*;
import java.servlet.*;
import java.servlet.http.*;

public class MyHttpRequest implements HttpServletRequest {
  HttpServletRequest raw;
  MyHttpRequest( HttpServletRequest rawRequest ) {
    this.raw = rawRequest;
  }
  public String getParameter( String name ) {
    return null;
  }
  public Enumeration getParameterNames( ) {
    return Collections.enumeration( Collections.EMPTY_LIST );
  }
  public Map getParameterMap() {
    return Collections.EMPTY_MAP;
  }
  public Type allOtherMethodsInInterface( parameter list ) {
    [return] raw.allOtherMethodsInInterface( parameter list );
  }
  ......
}

then you can do:
RequestDispatcher.redirect( new MyHttpRequst(request), response)

let me know if you have futher enquires.

If you just want to call another JSP without any params just do it with JavaScript:

.......
<SCRIPT>
function forward(){
top.location.href="test2.jsp"
}
</SCRIPT>
......
<input type=button OnClick="javascript:forward();">
.....
or directly:
.....
<input type=button OnClick="javascript:top.location.href='test2.jsp';">
.....

If you don't want the Client to interact with your JSP you can also do this
Test1.jsp
..........
Your JSP CODE
.......
<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<P> Please Wait..... </P>

<SCRIPT>
top.location.href="test2.jsp"
</SCRIPT>
</BODY>
</HTML>

This will call Test2.jsp without any parameters and and without client inteeact.

But as Kennethxu says I don't know why you don't want to make a response.sendRedirect....
