I have a JSP page where I am trying to open a new link (supoose new link is: http://www.w3schools.com/) in a new window using the traget attribute upon submitting the form and I am also opening up another link (suppose another link is: http://www.google.com/) in the parent window using javascript. But if I run the code in Safari and Google Chrome, it only opens the second link (google one), it doesn't open the w3schools link.

Please advise if there is any alternative to target="_blank" or any other way to open both windows (When we open both the windows, the focus should be on w3schools window).

Here is the test JSP page that I have created to demonstrate the issue:

Please use proper indentation when posting code. You code is really hard to read.

It has nothing at all to do with target, but You've set up a race condition between the timer and the submit.

Back up a bit and explain what you're really trying to accomplish. Whatever it is, this isn't the way to do it.
All that thinking. Doesn't it hurt? What do you think about this tiny ad?
