Bharath,
This solution I tried, but is very tedious work. I cannot embed some 50 a href tags to document.write. Please give alternate solution to call the javascript variable in a href.

AND can I ask why you are relying on JavaScript tp do this when you have a reliable thing called the serverside language to do it. What if the user clicks on a link before the page loads? Looks like they will get an error in the right frame.

Jaikiran,
I have tried your thing, but I am getting fullpath like this see the bolded one:
eg:
abc/jsp/openhyperlink.jsp?fileName=/u03/app/Learning/http://localhost:8080/abc/jsp/TC1011018C.html
I must get like this "
abc/jsp/openhyperlink.jsp?fileName=/u03/app/Learning/TC1011018C.html

Please let me know the solution for this.

To answer Eric question, Here my requirement is we need to dump lot of elearning courses in a separate content server. The elearning courses will have many html, swf, img files etc. I calling this html files via server side script ie from Jsp. But I cannot write any Jsp code in the content server folder and call it in Jsp or servlet. Did I answer your question.
