Hi all, if I have the following jsp file that is triggered when user clicks on a link through a JS onclick handler, would the JS code be executed first before the redirect ?

Thanks all.

String chName = request.getParameter("chName");
out.println("<script language=\"JavaScript\">");
out.println("var chName=\"" + chName + "\";");
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"><!--
if(eMetrics == true) {
var _rsCI="...";
var _rsCG=chName;
var _rsND=_rsLP+'//';
if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion)>=4) {
_rsCL='<scr'+'ipt language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="'+_rsND+'v5.js"></scr'+'ipt>';
} else {
_rsCL='<img src="'+_rsND+'cgi-bin/m?ci='+_rsCI+'&cg='+_rsCG+'&si='+_rsSI+'&rp='+_rsRP+'">';

Yes, the javascript will execute first. I assume you set the target for the redirect in the Java code on the page and not the javascript?
