You need to use Javascript within the framed page to tell the top-most page to close.

The words "close the page" are misleading - it looks like you want to replace the framed page with new content. In order to do that the link must specify a "target" for the new page. As I recall, target="_parent" is what you want.
This is really a HTML problem - every servlet programmer should have a HTML reference handy.
