I am having some issues with a specific AppServer and how it is interpreting the specification. Say I have a servlet which maps to the url /testServlet/*. All this servlet does is: response.sendRedirect("main.jsp") Now if the url that is accessing this is http://someHost.com/testServlet/page it will be redirected to http://someHost.com/testServlet/main.jsp but what would happen if the url is: http://someHost.com/testServlet/some/other/path/to/page should the container turn the relative "main.jsp" to http://someHost.com/testServlet/main.jsp or to http://someHost.com/testServlet/some/other/path/to/main.jsp Thank You    More>>

but what would happen if the url is:
http://someHost.com/testServlet/some/other/path/to/page

should the container turn the relative "main.jsp" to
http://someHost.com/testServlet/main.jsp

or to
http://someHost.com/testServlet/some/other/path/to/main.jsp

Thank You
