iView Servlet to external JSP (forwarding)

0 Kudos

Hi All,

I have been looking for a straight answer for some time now with limited success. I am attempting to simply forward to an external JSP page from my iView servlet and pass a bean.

How am I able to do a forward? I'm looking for the iView equivalent of the response.redirect.

Keep in mind that I do not want to forward to an internal JSP and have that redirect to the external one and I also do not want to have to import any additional components into the external JSP.

Hi Larry,


If you think of sendRedirect, that's redirecting on client side in the end.

Anyhow, you can use IPortalComponentRequest.redirect(String URI) (see should be the same on EP5 I think) or you can try to use the standard methods from the underlying HttpServletRequest / -Reponse (IPortalComponentRequest.getServletRequest() / getServletResponse()).

Using a RequestDispatcher won't work for you want to call an outside servlet (for the same reason I'm unsure if redirect works).

Last but not least you could "implement" a client side redirect just by sending an equivalent JS file to the client (at least for URL isolated iViews).

Hope it helps
