A RequestDispatcher object can forward a client's request to a resource or include the resource itself in the response back to the client. A resource can be another servlet, or an HTML file, or a JSP file, etc.
A sendRedirect() method sends the client request to some other site or
any resourse like another servlet, html file or a jsp file,etc.
