I am new to javascript.
I use window.open("xyz.do"); to open a new browser when the user clicks on a hyperlink.
But now I have a requirement that if this new browser is already open and user clicks on the hyberlink another new window should not b e opened. Instead the existing window should be used.
Does anyone know how to do this ?
