Remove the underscore from the word "on_click" in the code he wrote so that it becomes a single word.

javascript is not the best way to check for conditions and redirect to different page. use MVC pattern. From a jsp, redirect to a servlet and check for conditions there. Do all the business logic in the servlet and then redirect back to a jsp based on the condition.
This way, you never have to modify the jsp again. Just keep changing the business logic in servlet whenever required.
