Hi, i have this link

<a href="abc.jsp" > ABC </a>

But i would like to make this link invisible for user. Only selected user where informed that there is a hidden link on particular positions can able to know where to click on it.

You may make your page password protected, means if a user is logged in, the content will changed accordingly.

To hide the above link, you may need user to login.

if the session is detected, with specified value, show to link, else not show.

Example:

<%
if (session.getAttribute("showlink") != null) {
    if (session.getAttribute("showlink").toString().equals("yes")) {
           %><a href="abc.jsp" > ABC </a>
<%
   }
}
%>

I agree with ryancys.
but if you don't already have a login page and there is no plan for it. the direct solution is:
<a href="abc.jsp">&nbsp;&nbsp;</a>
of course, you can use style to change mouse pointer and underlining.

Or you can make the font the same color as the background - using css.

<html>
<head>
.itemlink:link {TEXT-DECORATION: none; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #white; font-size:13 ;}
</head>

<body bgcolor=white>
<a href="abc.jsp" > ABC </a>
</body>

etc.

and as kenneth said above, you can also change mouse pointer.

fks2, I believe the B grade is unfair to ryancys. experts will also check you grading history before they answer your future questions.
