I have a "a" tag and clicking on that a PDF file should open(Not in a browser.It should open directly)
<a " onclick="openFile('<%=filepath%>')" >filename</a>


This is my javascript code...

function openFile(path)
{
window.open(path);
}
but its not working.
pdf file and jsp are in different locations and filepath is an entire path of file which it exist like /home/Document1_1345617151061/Consolidate.pdf..
please provide me the solution.

Thanks..
