I am calling a servlet from inside a frame..but the problem is that the output from the servlet is also directed to this particular frame...how can i redirect it to any other frame or say have it display on "top"
The way to direct the output from a servlet to another frame or window is to use the "target" attribute of the <a> and <form> tags. For example <a href="/servlets/something" target=_top>Do It</a> "_top" is a special name indicating the overall frame for the current window. Otherwise you may use the name of any window or frame that the browser knows about.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
