For each submit button can call different function and in those functions u can call the respective content.Its quite easy .
But i didn't got that "pocket pc platform" what it exactly means? :confused

handling every thing on the serverside. just use a single form and submit the entire data. take the required data elements in the servlet based on submit button and redirect to final page on server.(this is ineffecient). but no other possibility.
<form ... action="redirect.class">
<input type=submit name="a">
<input type=submit name="b">
every submit button has a name. use it in servlet to find which submit is called.
do the job of javascript in redirect servlet. and redirect to the required servlet or jsp.

Thanks your reply.
They should be different page(jsp||servlet)that I make mention of different contents,then one form should own multi-action events in order to go.

Are you talking about multiple forms, each with its own submit, or multiple submits within a single form?
In the latter, you will require some sort of client side logic to get different behavior out of the various submit buttons. If you don't use javascript, I'm not sure what options remain.
If you have multiple forms in the same page, I believe only the inputs of one form are sent to the server. Even if the form parameters have the same names and values, each form can have a different action, thus different behavior on the server side.
