Hi, I have a jsp page, and there is a button on it, when I click this button, I want to go to another url, let's say http://www.google.com. Is it possible to do it. Can one give me a clue how to implement this using Java?
I tried something like
URL link = new URL(intraURL); HttpURLConnection httpConnect = (HttpURLConnection)link.openConnection(); httpConnect.setRequestMethod("GET"); httpConnect.setDoOutput(true); System.out.println(httpConnect.getURL()); httpConnect.connect();
It doesn't work, I guess the above codes just makes a connection, but not physically go to the page.
any help will be apprecitaed.

well you could make the button go to the page without posting to the servlet. But based on your code I assume you want the JSP to post to a servlet. If thats true take a look at sendRedirect method of HttpServletResponse.
