HTTPUnit does not find JSP pages

In my HttpServlet I redirect the request using the following:
request.getRequestDispatcher("/testpage.jsp").forward(request, response);

Then in my HTTPUnit TestCase I have the following:
public void testGet() throws Exception
        ServletRunner sr = new ServletRunner(new File(
        ServletUnitClient client = sr.newClient();

        WebResponse response = client

The tests works fine until it reaches the request redirection line in my servlet. It then fails with the following error:
com.meterware.httpunit.HttpInternalErrorException: Error on HTTP request: 500 org.apache.jasper.JasperException: C:\Documents and Settings\shahla\MyWorkspace\MyProject\WEB-INF\web.xml (The system cannot find the path specified) [http://localhost:8080/MyRecord?username=tester]

My web.xml has the following:

The test passes when I commented out the line that redirects the request. Do I have to do something special to allow ServletUnitClient in HTTPUnit to follow redirections? Autoredirect is already set to true.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It's not a redirection but an internal forward. A redirection invovles a response being send to the browser saying that the content has temporarily moved -  HTTP code 307.
Because the servlet does not actually do the response, I think you need to implement what is shown here http://httpunit.sourceforge.net/doc/servletunit-intro.html in the section entitled "Testing Servlet Internals"
