Default form action attribute

hi i had created a jsp which opens using window.open.

now this opened page has a submit button but the action attribute of the form tag is empty. now when i submit the page i realize that the url used to open this page from my parent page is used again.

i am a bit confused as to why it does so. is it made to that?
can someone clarify

thanks for the help

If you don't want an action, make it:

action="javascript:void(0);"
