I don't see how you can solve your problem without using JavaScript. Popup windows are controlled by the browser. Struts has no direct control over the browser; it does all its work on the server side. As far as I know, you have to use JavaScript to open up a popup window. That or specify a target, which is still controlled by the browser.

<a href="..." target="myPopup">Click me to open up another window</a>
