difference between jsp:forward and window.location in javascript

sorry for the point allocation I need to buy some more will do soon but would be very grateful if you could help in the meanwhile. I normally allocate 500 so apologies once again.

I have a pop-up window which when opened needs to forward to another page.
some people I have seen window.location and others jsp:forward. Surley these do the same thing?

what is the diference between the two and why would I choose one over the other

many thanks

jsp:forward forwards the request to other jsp or servlet.

but in java script you can change the page but you cannot forward a request
