I tried opening a new window using html:link attribute but could not do so. I got to know that it is possible only through javascript method.(is it true that struts 1.1 do not provide this functionality)

Any way when i tried using window.popup my jsp page did not load since the page which I am giving to javascript method is relative path (like /jsp/projectLeader.jsp) do I need to pass a full path (I dont think so there must be some way)

You must use attribute "target".

<s:a href="" target="_blank"/>

_blank Open in a new window or tab
_self Open in the same frame as it was clicked
_parent Open in the parent frameset
_top Open in the full body of the window
framename Open in a named frame
I agree. Here's the link:
