URL problem with Hash symbol

I have a JSP page which has a ahref=""

Problem: When I click on the ahref, everything from # is stripped off in the URL
  • Try 1: Encoded # with %23 - did not work
  • Try 2: Used Java URL encoder class to encode

  • Try 1 & 2 are not working. Is there are way around to make this work.

    Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please read this for more information.
