Display of popup screen in Portlets

I have a web application, where we had to open a popup from parent page, search for users, select one user and click ok.
The selected user will now be displayed on the parent page.
The code used to open the popup window is as follows

var url = "searchPage.xhtml";
var popUp =,"POPUP","width=680,height=450,scrollbars=yes,menubar=yes,resizable=no");
This code works fine

But now I've migrated the application to a Portlet in WebSphere Portal Server.
I didnt make any change to the above code.
Now when i click on the command button, a popup window opens but displays nothing but the following error message

Error 400: EJPEI0088E: The resource searchPage.xhtml could not be found.

Can any body tell me whether i used the right way to open the popup?
Is it different in WAS & WPS ?

Thanks in Advance,

Thanks and Regards,
