I believe you can only open a new window on the client side (browser)... so dispatch a html or jsp that uses Javascript and opens a new window.

Also modal window is specific to Internet explorer and not supported in many other browsers. Please refer

You would do this either with Javascript, or by setting a target attribute in the form from which you are submitting.

Either way, it's more of an HTML issue than a servlet one so moving:
