I am running a Java application using Tomcat 6 and JBoss 5.1. I've created an URL redirection function using Java Elements addHtml() function (javascript). Well, I am able to alert the URL of current browser (alert(window.location.href)) but I am not able to redirect to a specific URL (window.location.href = 'URL'). The code shown as below:



At the same time, the IE status bar is processing http://www.google.com but somehow it does not redirect me to the page. Help needed. Thanks in advance =)

Okay, I'm lost. So now I understand that the code you posted is Java code. Or so you say. However the documentation you linked to is confusing, because in your code the Element object has an addHtml() method and in that documentation, it doesn't.

But anyway, what are you trying to do? If you want to redirect to some other URL from that Java code, then generating Javascript code is pointless. And generating a DOM which contains that Javascript is just as pointless. Just call the response object's sendRedirect(URL) method.

Or were you hoping the Javascript code could somehow redirect to the URL? If you somehow managed to get it into the browser, that is? You remark about IE's status bar pointing to www.google.com is also baffling because if the browser sent a request to that URL then your code wouldn't be running.

So I would suggest you go back a couple of steps and try to explain all of this.
