I agree. So, I switched to use href to accomplish it. This is how, I am doing it..
The onclick method is..
When I click on the link, it opens a new window and displays default error page. I believe the action is not called (the sysout I put in the action is not printed on the console). I'm not sure if my href approach is correct. Can you please suggest, how I should use it to call the action? Your help is much appreciated.
