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
