I use resin as my web server.When I do update and delete function in javascript, I get error.
function DEL(){
alert("Ready to delete.");
return true;
function checkUpd(){
if (prdfrm3.title.value==""){
alert("Please input title !");
return false;
if(prdfrm3.mediatype.checked == false){
alert("Please input media type!");
return false;
alert("Ready to Update.");
document.prdfrm3.action="produpdresp.jsp"; error
return true;

I deploy this program in XP professional. The error states that the object does not support this.

im not a js expert, but maybe using a variable would help. name it response say. then in html set action=response. then in js change value of response to proper jsp page. hope that helps.
