servlets to frames

This is a really simple question I'm sure, but I have a page using frames. There is a top horizontal frame, left side vertical frame, and main target frame.

My question is, I've placed a search function in the top frame that calls a servlet to search through my database. Now the problem is that I don't want the top frame to display the results. Is it possible to send the results to the target frame through a servlet?

Here is my frame code, if it helps at all.

Yes, it is possible by setting the TARGET in topFrame.jsp.
