Is there a way to open another window from a modal window without closing the modal window?

Why would you want to do that?

By definition, a MODAL window is supposed to prevent the user from using other windows until they are finished interacting with the modal window. Why would you want to usurp that? If you don't want it to be modal, don't use a modal window. You probably need to rethink your user experience design if you feel you really need to open another window from a modal window.

What kind of "modal window"? There's no such thing as a modal window in JSP or even HTML for that matter.

Are you using a JavaScript library that mimics modal windows?

Or are you talking about IE's proprietary modal windows from 1998?
