How to direct jsp page to different frame?

How to direct jsp page to different frame?

How to direct jsp page to different frame?

I have a frameset consisting of 3 horizontal frames, the search form being in the center frame.

| top frame        |
| center frame     |
| bottom frame     |

From that search form, I have 2 radio buttons to distinguish which type of search the user wants to perform (ID# or LastName).  The results of an ID# search appear in the same center frame.  However, my problem is that I want LastName search results to appear in the bottom frame.

Preferably, I would like to know how to do this in the servlet.  However, any ideas would be appreciated!!

Thank you!


RE: How to direct jsp page to different frame?

In case anyone else is looking for a solution to this problem:
I ended up using javascript to solve this problem and call it in the <form onsubmit="whichframe()">

function whichframe(){
if (document.forms[0].strSearchBy[0].checked){
   document.forms[0].target = "main";
}else if (document.forms[0].strSearchBy[1].checked){
   document.forms[0].target = "search";
}else if (document.forms[0].strSearchBy[2].checked){
   document.forms[0].target = "search";
