We have a set of JSF/JSP pages. One is a table of items, which is successfully being displayed in a browser window.
We would like to click on one of the items have a details page open in a new tab without closing the source tab.
We have no problem getting the item ID. We are having a problem opening the related details page in a separate tab within the current browser window (response.sendRedirect and requestDispatcher.forward open over the current window).
We are using JSF/JSP (and Gantt Charts, but not really relevent).
We know for HTTP we would use something like:
<A HREF="newwindow.html" TARGET="_blank">a new window</A>
We have tried things like:
<%@ page language="java" %>
<%@ taglib uri="<a href="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html" target="_blank" ...
<%@ taglib uri="<a href="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" target="_blank" ...
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
Much time has been spent - I guess we are searching on the wrong keywords. Any help would be appreciated.
