I'm trying to go from a servlet, stored in a war (servlets.war, context-root in /servlets) to a jsp file stored in another war (jsp.war, context root in /jsp). My code is shown below, but it seems like there are two differents contexts for each of these war files, so the redirection can not happen.
RequestDispatcher disp =
I get a NullPointerException:
[Engine] StandardWrapperValve[LoginServlet]: Servlet.service() for servlet LoginServlet threw exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
the log shows errors from org.apache.catalina.core or
org.apache.tomcat so I presume I'm using Tomcat, not Jetty
I tried assigning both wars to the / context root in application.xml, and changing the files' <jsp-file> and <url-pattern> by prefixing the /jsp/ and /servlets/ respectively in order to preserve the links, but it still doesn't work.
Is it possible to share a common context between my war files? or is that really the problem? how come RequestDispatcher.forward() gives me a null?
Thanks for any help :)
