Hello All,

How can I make a servlet open a new browser window (or a pop-up window) at the client end with an html form in it?

Thanks a lot in advance,
RookieServletPrgmer

I have posted this doubt on multiple forums !!

You can't.

The opening of the new window must happen on the client and the request made to the new window. This can be done with window.open(), or with a target attribute on a link or form.

Hi

What you have to do is , from your servlet , you need get access to PrintWriter ,

PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();

Now you should explicitly construct an HTML Page this way :


and depending upon your requirement call this function , which will open this new page for you if exists
