opening popup window conditionally

From a JSP called "ABC.jsp", when I click "View Item" button it should call
corresponding action class,process and display results(displayitems.jsp) in a popup window. for some reason if the result is error page or login page then the popup window should not be opened rather it should replace ABC.jsp in main window.

If result is displayitems.jsp I want to open this jsp in pop up window and
keep ABC.jsp open in main window.
If result is some other page I want to replace ABC.jsp with result page in
main window.

how to do this opening the popup window conditionally i.e. based on result

Your response is appreciated!

I guess you can set a flag when an error occurs, and then check for that flag in the JSP (using hidden fome field)
