Hi,
I want that my sevrelt opens a *new* window and forward it to urlChat2
Like this line but this forward to urlChat2 in the *current* window :
getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher(urlChat2).forward(request,response);

And the current window must be forwarded to urlIndex


How can I do this ?

Thank u.

servlet can not open a new browser window, since it is a server side program.
you need to do this in the client side itself, by using javascript openwindow.
and use location.replace method to call the servlet from javascript

specify the target in the link to the servlet

eg.

<a href="MyServlet" target="_new">Click here</a>
