servlet filters and multiple applications in tomcat

Is there a way to configure tomcat so i can reference one application from within another?  specifically I want a servlet filter to catch a request to a resource in tomcat_home/webapps/app_A and have it handled by a servlet in tomcat_home/webapps/app_B.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
John

You could forward the request to app_B
//in the doGet or doPost of servet in App-a

String returnUrl =
  response.encodeUrl(/* full url path to servlet in App-B */);
ServletConfig servletConfig = getServletConfig();
ServletContext context = servletConfig.getServletContext();
RequestDispatcher dispatcher = context.getRequestDispatcher( returnUrl );
     
dispatcher.forward(request, response);


// that should do it.

you would want to use response.encodeURL instead of response.encodeUrl
The later is deprecated :D
