RequestDispatcher class is mainly used to 'pass on' the current request to another program (servlet) and therefore allows 'chaining' of the programs. A RequestDispatcher primarily contains two methods include() and forward(). include() method includes the response of another program while forward() method forwards the request of the current program to another one.
