Currently I have a servlet which stores some data into a database. I intend for it to forward the user afterwards to some other website depending on a parameter sent to the servlet. The problem is I can't get it to forward the parameters or don't know how rather.

Example:
Site A = The Servlet which stores data
Site B = The Other Company they do what they want with the data
Site C = The form which passes parameters to Site A


Site C ---> Site A (parameters) -----> Site B (same parameters as Site A)

It would not be to hard to redirect the user if I was just using get. However, I'm using get or post and need to have the ability to send get or post.

you can only redirect sorry, and you cannot redirect a post
so you'll need to either redirect using a GET
or make the POST request direct and return results yourself to caller

I forgot to mention that it must work across more than one domain... Site A http://www.a.com Site B http://www.b.com Site C http://www.c.com

doesn't really change things, you're still stuck with doing a redirect
