Forward Pages into a Frame

I've got a static mainframe with links, all the pages ( will be opened inside a frame (an iframe).
When I click the link in the mainframe, I only say <a href="" target="rightframe">.
In that I can view addresses and edit them. this edit dialog will be forwarded by "return mapping.findForward("edit").". Will that edit page be shown in the frame or as new top-page in the browser? How or where can I set a frame for the forward page?
thanks for any help!

It would be shown in the frame because that is the target for the link. If you want to change the target, it needs to be done in the HTML before you submit the link. Struts can change the result page, but it cannot change the target.
