How to get Java Servlet output into a different HTML Frame.

Hi,
I have a HTML Form in a frame that sends information to a servlet.  I would like the output of the servlet to go to a different Frame.  How can I do this?

thanks

I think you will need to do some Javascript jiggery-pokery to get the form to post from the other frame...

AFAIK, there is no way to redirect the servlet output back into another frame...

I may be wrong...

>> jiggery-pokery

That's a technical term is it ?

Can someone show me how this might work?  I am not aware how I can have Javascript on one frame comunicate with Javascript on another frame.
TimYatesCommented:
parent.frames[ 1 ].postData( "Tim" ) ;


then in the other frame, have a form with a hidden value (in this case name), and do:

function postData( name )
{
  document.forms[ 0 ].name = name ;
  document.forms[ 0 ].submit ;
}

I think...
TimYatesCommented:
if you have named your frames, I *think* you can do:

parent.theotherframe.postData( "Tim" ) ;

Seems to agree with me, but I am no Javascript expert :-(
