I want the url to open in the default browser of the client. Can anyone help me how to achieve this.. I want to do this on Client side... Can we do this on Javascript.. Please suggest. I am just stuck in here...
I am able to get the alert with the url but just not able to open a new window in default browser...
<script type="text/javascript"><![CDATA[
function test(tbxss){
alert('testing' + tbxss);
java.lang.Runtime.getRuntime().exec("rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler " + tbxss);
}



]]></script>

This has nothing to do with JSP. It is just a view technology. Your question is Javascript related. There is a forum out for HTML/Javascript related issues.

Back to your actual problem: in Javascript you normally use window.open() for this. There's no need for this platformspecific workaround.

No need to do so. A moderator will move this topic sooner or later.
Besides, your question is also already answered. Why'd you to open a new topic then?

Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
