I want to be able to click a button from my JSP page that will redirect to my account and open up the link for how many of my products have been sold. But I am not to sure if this can be done. I have just started with JSP and Servlets so also would a Servlet be better for this?

Well, first off, you can't "click a button on a JSP page". A JSP is a template for a web page, not a web page itself. So you'd have to "click a button on the HTML page generated from the JSP and sent to your client (browser)".
Beyond that, I'm not sure what you mean. A simple < a href=... > tag is enough to send the user from a "local" page to a "foreign" one.
If what you wanted was a sort of "picture-in-picture" view of site B while at site A, that's an old framing trick.
Of course there are also tricks used by many sites to PREVENT them from being framed by another site...

First I know that you click a button is a HTML page but I want the user to click a button go to a nother web site and have my JSP dynamiclly fill in all the users info and then log them in.
I agree. Here's the link:
