go to a web url using java code

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.

thanks.

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.

Oh this probably belongs in JSP or Servlets.

Once the page is presented to the user on the client, and hence the oppurtunity to click on the button, all the Java has already executed on the server.

So the answer to your question is:



Why do you think that any Java at all is necessary?
