Requests that the browser or applet viewer show the Web page indicated by the url argument. The target argument indicates in which HTML frame the document is to be displayed. The target argument is interpreted as follows: "_self" = Show in the window and frame that contain the applet. "_parent" = Show in the applet's parent frame. If the applet's frame has no parent frame, acts the same as "_self". "_top" Show in the top-level frame of the applet's window. If the applet's frame is the top-level frame, acts the same as "_self". "_blank" = Show in a new, unnamed top-level window. name = Show in the frame or window named name. If a target named name does not already exist, a new top-level window with the specified name is created, and the document is shown there.
java.applet.AppletContext The name argument you are passing does not match an existing frame, so it creates a new top-level window.
