I am running a jsp application on tomcat and need the ability to open a new window. The new window can be html but ideally I could use a jsp to build dynamic html. My first thought would be to use a window.open(). I am not sure if there are any limitations in doing this with jsp or if there is a better approach than the window.open(). One large drawback to using a window.open() is the IE information bar that appears when a supposed pop-up is encountered.
