Try this

<script LANGUAGE="javascript">
function callIt ()
{
      val1 = confirm ("Yes or no?");
      document.frm1.action="http://your.domain.com/cgi-bin/j_test.cgi?value1=blah&value2="+val1;
      document.frm1.submit;
      return false;
}
</script>

:
:
<form name="frm1" onSubmit="callIt ()">
:
:
<input type="submit" name="btnSubmit" value="Click">
</form>
