1)  What are the major differences between a jsp:forward and response.sendRedirect ?    Is it just that a re-direct has to go back to the client first?

2)  Can you jsp:forward to another domain / url?   e.g.  <jsp:forward page="" />

    2. No, forwards are handled *internally* so need to stay in same app context
