Use the onclick attribute of the button and "confirm" dialog box : http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_confirm.asp

 
<input type="button" value="delete" onclick="if( confirm('Really ?') ) deleteFunction();" />

ok will try that way.Thanks
I have one more requirement of same java script please suggest me solution for this.
I have a drop down which has multiple values in that and for each value selected i will call action class there based on the value i selected i will make a different method call.So among the values in drop down i have a delete functionality.when i select delete from drop down and click on save it should not call action class first instead it should give be a alert saying "sure you want to delete " when click on yes it should call action class method.But in struts.xml file i mapped save button to action class now only for this situation how can i make a action class call.

<select onclick="callAjax(this)">
  <option value="add">Add</option>
  <option value="del">Delete</option>
</select>

function callAjax(thisObj)
{
   if(thisObj.value="del")
   {
         if( confirm( "You really really wanna delete this?" ) )
         {
               \\ajax call  
         }  
   }
}

<s:submit type="button" value="Delete" action="deletet" onclick="delete()" />

javascript call is not working with onClick command in struts 2 ...
its not going to that method call

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
 function delete() {
 alert("cat");
 alert(dog);
 }
 </script>
