Hello. This is what i'm trying to do:

public class ComputeSearch extends HttpServlet {
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
	
	protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
PrintWriter exit=response.getWriter();

exit.println("<%@ include file=\"GetByPath.jsp?path=1/2/5/\" %>");
    }
}

The problem is that the server does not compile that jsp line. It just prints it ! Any idea how to make it compile and use it as a link?

I'm sorry? .. I don't think i know about a request dispatcher, haven't heard of.
I'm new to java/jsp, i've started learning it form zero 2 weeks ago.
Please tell me how can i make it compile the line instead of printing it. Please!

Thank you adatapost, but it's still not clear for me how to exactly do it, for i have tried the following :

public class ComputeSearch extends HttpServlet {
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
	
	protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
request.setAttribute("path","1/2/3/");
request.setAttribute("chapter","ChTitle");
request.setAttribute("start","Number1");
request.setAttribute("end", "Number2");
RequestDispatcher dispatcher = request.getRequestDispatcher("/GetByPath.jsp");
  if (dispatcher != null)
 dispatcher.forward(request, response);
 else System.err.println("Error: dispathcer is null");
    }
}

.. and nothing happens. The url in the browser does change to the servlet's adress, but the page remains the same.

Do not use / root with resource name.

RequestDispatcher dispatcher = request.getRequestDispatcher("GetByPath.jsp");

Thanks!
I do the following in my jsp page :

String path= request.getParameter("path");

but it returns null. The parameters that where given to the servlet are still there in jsp, but not so for the new ones. Please tell, is there something i'm not doing right?
