B2create a form with action to other jsp

Hi

I'm trying to create a module type B2 something like:

bb-manifest file:

<module type="uob-module-search-guest" ......

 

This would appear as a widget or module on a communities tab. This is a simple form I'd like to redirect. I'm not sure where it should redirect to which is probably my issue too? Do I have to create a tab for the search results or can this be done as-is.

 

I'm sure if I did this with a servlet it would be fine but was just after a quick way to send the form action to another jsp page. I'm just struggling to work out how to send the form (post) action to my other jsp. I thought it would be trivial but clearly I'm missing something

 

My form is:

 

  <bbNG:form action="search-results.jsp" method="post" >

    <bbNG:textElement name="qry" value="" size="50" maxLength="55"

  isRequired="true" title="Title" />

     <bbNG:genericSubmit>

  <bbNG:genericSubmitButton label="Go!" />

  </bbNG:genericSubmit>

  </bbNG:form>

 

 

If I use the form then the page attempts to post/redirect to:

http://localhost:9876/webapps/portal/execute/tabs/search-results.jsp

 

How to I set the action to point to the other JSP file. I'm thinking it might be a bb-manifest thing or I should just give in and use a servlet but I'm thinking that was easier as it was a course tool as opposed to a module type. Would a JSP forward be better?

 

I've created a very short video so you see my issue.

example form 

 

Thanks
