Jsp:forward will run in server side. but the general function will execute in client side. so i think you can't use javascript function for JSP work.
let me know if you have any other points.

Even I addressed the same problem .
But now i have solved it.
Call a Java script function onclick event. say refreshmethod() is the Java script method which is called on clicking the button
In a JSP page
<script language="JavaScript">
function refreshmethod()
<input type=button onClick="refreshmethod()" ></input>
