I dont know what sort of architecture you are using but if the link itself is incharge of pulling the servelet, here is what you can do (this is straight HTML, so not sure if its useful for you):
1. Name the three frames in the frameset
2. in your href link, in addition to the servlet name place target="frame_name"
This will load the specified servlet into the given frame, but if you are using a controller which handles all the requests then you will need to do a bit more work

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

Suppose there are two frames, Frame a and Frame b
html contents for frame a
input type=button value="Search" onclik="parent.frames.b.document.location='ServletPath'"
(plz correct spellings of click)
When you click on this button(Search), it will load the contents generated by the servlet mentioned in the servletpath.
Hope this helps.
