I have a JSP A which is listening for a request then it forwards it to servelt A (I just have <jsp:include></jsp> tag). Then servelt A process the request and parameters then displays the result back to JSP A. Now the way I have written my servlet A I am using doGet method to process all the parameters. I am using doPost for some other routines.
The third party App will post their results to my JSP A with the POST method. How can I get all the prameters and then redirect them to my servlet's A doGet method?

Please provide some concreate examples! Thank you in advance!

The one simple solution is in the included jsp you add this code at the top of it.

request.setAttribute("doGet", "YES");

and in the doPost method of servlet file.

if(((String)request.getAttribute("doGet")).equalsIgnoreCase("YES")) {
  doGet(request, response);

However, I have an additional condition:

1) JSP page sends a POST request to my Servlet E

2) Servlet E listens for a specific parameter (see above thread) then it redirects it to its doGet method

3) doGet proccess the information and then at some point redirects the request to another Servlet C


Servlet C gets the request from servlet E just fine but it's doPost get's the response! I need to route it to doGet right away from servlet E. How can I do that?

Could you dump your code in part of redirect to servlet C?
