Closing the browser window in JSP

Hi friends,
I am creating an application and almost finished it. I have no problem with the coding part. Here goes my scenario:

When i generate a report, the report will open in a new browser window. When the user views it and clicks 'ok', I have written a piece of code in seperate file that deletes those details from the database. Now, I need to close the report window once the 'ok' button is clicked. Is there any such method in JSP that automatically closses the window or we have to write in script?


PS: I am a beginner of JSP


The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it

JSP operates on the server and has no control over the browser window.

By using Java Script, can achieve this. But th problem is you cannot submit your form to the server for further actions.
