Hello everybody,

I'm working with servlets in a project. I have 5 servlets and I need the comunication between them. I am communicate them with the context and for initialize the servlets I 'm doing with the response.sendredirect(path).
The trouble that I have its that I need to redirect the servlet to a jsp. I tried with getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/SG_ConfigServCentral.jsp").forward(request, response); But I get an exception (java.lang.IllegalStateException: WEB2645: Cannot forward after response has been committed) and I tried with include instead of forward but didn't work too.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks a lot

It does not sounds like you are using the request dispatcher incorrectly.  More than likely, this error message is correct in stating that you have committed the response already BEFORE your try to forward the request.

You should be able to test this by forwarding the request immeadiately (before you process any additional information) and returning.  If it works then you are indeed commiting the reponse somewhere where you should not be.

Good luck,

-Mark

For me the following works on JBoss 3.2.2 (Tomcat 4.1):

<%@ page language="java" %>
<% response.sendRedirect(response.encodeRedirectURL("/index2.html")); %>

Make sure nothing (and I mean nothing) does something with the response before the redirect.

See Java(tm) Servlet Specification 2.3 FCS paragraph SRV.8.4

Hello again,

Yes I did something with the response, because I did the response.sendRedirect(path of the other servlets), so my question is if I can redirect a jsp afterI worked with the response. Here is my code

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws
        ServletException, IOException
    {
        String stOption;
        int inOption;
        ServletContext scContext;
        HttpServletResponse htResponse;

        scContext = this.getServletConfig().getServletContext();

        stOption = request.getParameter("param0");
        inOption = Integer.parseInt(stOption);
       
        switch (inOption)
        {
            case 0:

                bsInitHostServlets(response);

                if (inServletsCounter == -1)
                {
                    asSpooler = (SG__Servlet) scContext.getAttribute("Servlet");
                    bosSpooler = (SG__Servlet2) scContext.getAttribute("Servlet2");
                    sb_InitCloseSockets();
                    tbThreadVector.inInterfaceServlet = asSpooler;
                    tbThreadVector.inInterfaceServlet2 = bosSpooler;
                }
                break;

            case 2:
                bs_voPrintSpooler();
                break;

        }
        response.setContentType(CONTENT_TYPE);

        PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
       
        scContext.getRequestDispatcher("/jsp/SG_ConfigServCentral.jsp").include(
                request, response);


public void bsInitHostServlets(HttpServletResponse response) throws
        IOException
    {
        String stPath = "";

        stPath = bsReturnServletPath(inServletsCounter, true);

        if (stPath != "")
        {
            try
            {
                response.sendRedirect(stPath);
                inServletsCounter++;
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                System.out.println(e.getMessage());
            }
        }
        else
            inServletsCounter = -1;
      }

public String bsReturnServletPath(int inServletNumber, boolean boAllSer)
    {
        String stPath = "";
        String stParam;

        if (boAllSer == true)
            stParam = "param0=0";
        else
            stParam = "param0=1";

        switch (inServletNumber)
        {
            case 0:
                stPath = "/sg_comms_servlet?" + stParam;
                break;

            case 1:
                stPath = "/sg_servlet1?" + stParam;

                break;

            case 2:
                stPath = "/sg_servlet2?" + stParam;

                break;
        }
        return stPath;
    }

Thanks a lot.

Another comment, I am using the JBuilder and this exception only appear when I upload my project to iPlanet Web Server 6.0. Because when I compile in the JBuilder it works fine.

Thanks

>  so my question is if I can redirect a jsp afterI worked with the response.

no, you cannot redirect to *anything* after writing to the response.

you appear to also process the response after a redirect has been done. You cannot do that.

Well I need to do the following:

Servlet1 is the base of all my project, and I want that Servlet1 communicate with Servlet2 for initialize some proccess, and I need that Servlet2 return the control to Servlet1, I did it with parameters, like this:


SERVLET 1

response.sendRedirect(Path of servlet2?param=0);

SERVLET 2

response.sendRedirect(Path of Servlet1?param=0);

After that I need to display a JSP for the user.


Any other idea for try to do this??

doesn't sound like its a redirect you need, you cannot share processing between servlets.
once a servlet has redirected it should return.

At what line to you get the IllegalStateException, because after a sendRedirect you're not allowed to do anything as well. :-)
