Default A single JSP page havin one submit & normal button

Hi,
I have a single jsp wherein there is a single submit button which does all the validations when the form is submitted and a normal button which checks for just 2 validations and depending on that queries the database to get the rest of the results.Problem i am facing is Submit buttons functions are working fine but i am not able to code the normal button functons. Please refer the code.how should i make the normal button validate the first 2 fields and then go forward to act as a submit button?

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<%@ page info="eAssociate Feedback" language="java" import="java.util.*, java.io.*, java.net.*, java.text.* "%>
<%
String theMode = request.getParameter("mode");
if( theMode == null)
theMode="";
String serAddr = request.getServerName();
int serPort = request.getServerPort();
String pageTitle = request.getParameter("pagetitle");
%>
<%
if( theMode.equals("submit") )
{
try{
String OWNER_NAME = "";
String DEPARTMENT = " ";
String ID = "";
String ADDRESS = "";
String STATE = "";
String PURPOSE = "";
String browser = "";
String respReqd = "";

OWNER_NAME = request.getParameter("OWNER_NAME");
DEPARTMENT = request.getParameter("DEPARTMENT");
ID= request.getParameter("ID");
ADDRESS =request.getParameter("ADDRESS");
STATE = request.getParameter("STATE");
PURPOSE = request.getParameter("PURPOSE");
browser = request.getParameter("browser");
respReqd = request.getParameter("response");

out.print("The input info: Owner Name: " + OWNER_NAME+
       "DEPARTMENT: " + DEPARTMENT +
           "ID: " + ID + "ADDRESS: " + ADDRESS +
       "STATE: " + STATE + "PURPOSE: " +
       "PURPOSE: " + PURPOSE );
}
catch(Exception ex) {
out.print("<h3>Error encountered in your feedback</h3>");
out.print("Error Message :" + ex);
}
}
%>

Default

try using the click() method of the button like after you do the validation try to submit the form using the following line of code.
document.getElementById("formId").submit();

make sure that you add the id atribute for the form tag.
