hi,
  I have a link like this:

<a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid=<%=rs.getString( "organname") %>&skill=<%=rs.getString("skillid")%>><%=rs.getString("organname")%></a>

I don't know why the link is not being displayed, i get this as errors:
<a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid=Mercy&skill=Teacher>Mercy <a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid=Mercy&skill=Teacher>Mercy <a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid=Mercy.....

but the link is close but i don't know why,

Thanks

Can you post the code around the link?

I think there must be a problem with your code that you didn't paste here...

Try:

<a target='mypopup' href='popup.jsp?organizationid=<%=rs.getString( "organname") %>&skill=<%=rs.getString("skillid")%>'><%=rs.getString("organname")%></a>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
