I am not able to help coz I don't know your mistake.

Show what you are trying instead of something like what you are trying and I or someone else can probably help.

Basically I am trying to open a jsp page in a pop up window using Javascript.

Now the page to be loaded is dependent upon the product id i pass..

Say if the product id is 2 a page named page2.jsp is loaded

so a different page is loaded based on the product id

how do i do it

Krishna,

I would have a generic JSP as an intermediate step (dispatcher).

Your JavaScript can call it with the ProductID.
In the generic JSP, you can create the necessary URL and forward/re-direct to it.

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Krishna, it may be best to call a javascript function that accepts a couple of parameters to open the new window, calling the function with an onClick event from your form.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
