Hi, I was wondering if someone can help me with redirecting in mod pl/sql. I am trying to figure out how to code the following functionality - I have a page that among other things has a link on it - when the users click on the link, a proc gets exectued that sets a cookie, and does some user checking. I am trying to figure out how to add code to this proc so that the page opens in the same window via specified URL. in HTML/Cold Fusion I would code it something like this so that its a blank page opens and redirects the user to some url (everyting happens in the same window)

<TITLE>myGW Portal - CMail</TITLE>
<cfif SessionOK>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="0; URL=#mygw.Variables.my_sess#?gwnc=#Rand()##Rand()#">

<table width="100%" height="100%">
<tr><td align="center" style="font: verdana,geneva,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 11pt;">Loading: please wait ...</td></tr>

How do I do this in PL/SQL? Redirect to a specified URL (say, www.yahoo.com) so that it opens in the same window? Thank you!

Try to call the redirecting page or procedure inside the validation code using simple if else condition. if it validates it will call that procedure or page.

the redirect html will be essentially the same in cold fusion or Oracle. The "target" tag (_blank, _parent, _self, _top) determines where the change takes place. http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_a.asp
