    Mixing JSPs and HTML (II)

    Can jsp:forward be used to forward to an HTML?

    i.e., <jsp:forward page="/schedule/index.html" />

    Yes, with one caveat. According to section 2.5.2 of the spec:

    When a path starts with a "/" it is to be interpreted by the application
    to which the JSP page belongs; i.e its ServletContext object provides
    the base context URL.

    What this means in practice is that if you have a web application
    installed as /myapp, and you want to forward to /myapp/somedir/index.html,
    your tag would look like:

    <jsp:forward page="/somedir/index.html" />

    that is, without the /myapp. You can not redirect to a different web
    application with jsp:forward, although you can with a regular HTTP

    The same goes for jsp:include - you can include an HTML page or output
    of a servlet in a JSP.
