Here is how you would call a servlet when a user clicks on the menu:

(Assuming that the menu is made of CSS and HTML, and the menu item is an anchor html tag <a>)

<script type='text/javascript'>
function invokeServlet()
   // form a URL with the servlet name to be invoked
   var URL = 'http://hostname/servlet/servletName';

   // This line will inkove a servlet and reload your page
   location.href = URL;

<a href='#' onclick='invokeServlet()'>Click here to invoke servlet</a>
