Redirecting a page..

Hi everybody, I am using framesets which has got a TOP Frame and Bottom Frame. I have <form> in the bottom form. After submitting the Form, I am redirecting to a HTML page which I want to open in a main window (Parent / no framesets) and not in the bottom window and also not in a new page. How to proceed on with JSP. SUggestions or Piece of code is always welcome.

1. <form .... target="_top">

2. For Netscape browsers only:
response.addHeader("Window-target", "_top");

3. Use a client-side Javascript instead of redirect:
out.println("<script language=\"javascript\">");
out.println("top.location.href = \"page.htm\";");
out.println("</script>");

1.Assume this to be your bottom frame.
2.Add this script
     <script language="JavaScript">
       function calme()
       {
     window.open("http://www.prabooo.com","_parent");
       }
     </script>
3.From the submit button call the script
  <form>
  <input type="button" onClick="calme()">
  </form>
4.this redirects to the url and opens in the whole window.
Hope this would hlp u.

The solution (2) will work with Netscape browsers only. You should send the additional HTTP header before redirect (in JSP, assume response is a com.caucho.server.http.Response, for example):
<%
response.addHeader("Window-target", "_top");
response.sendRedirect("http://www.server.com/some_page.jsp");
%>

The solution (3) is a _client-side_ javascript. Simply replace the
<%
response.sendRedirect("http://www.server.com/some_page.jsp");
%>
line with
<%
out.println("<script language=\"javascript\">");
out.println("top.location.href = \"http://www.server.com/some_page.jsp\";");
out.println("</script>");
%>
in your JSP page.
