            Hi Shailesh,

            You can harcode a link to "/portal/yourpage" or walk into the portal hierarchy to find your pages.
            Follows an example how to do that:

            import org.jboss.portal.api.node.PortalNode;
            import org.jboss.portal.api.node.PortalNodeURL;
            import org.jboss.portlet.JBossRenderRequest;
            import org.jboss.portlet.JBossRenderResponse;
            import org.jboss.portal.core.impl.api.node.PortalNodeImpl;
            protected void doView(RenderRequest request, RenderResponse response) throws PortletException, UnavailableException {
             String myPageName = "MyPageName"; // this is your page name that you´re looking for
             JBossRenderRequest req = (JBossRenderRequest) request;
             PortalNode currentNode = req.getPortalNode();
             while (currentNode.getType() != PortalNode.TYPE_PORTAL) {
             currentNode = currentNode.getParent();
             for (Iterator i = currentNode.getChildren().iterator(); i.hasNext();) {
             PortalNode child = (PortalNode)i.next();
             if (child.getType() == PortalNode.TYPE_PAGE) {
             if (child instanceof PortalNodeImpl) {
             if (child.getName().equals(myPageName)) {
             PortalNodeURL childURL = ((JBossRenderResponse)response).createRenderURL(child);
             System.out.println("url to mypage = " + childURL.toString());

            There is a good example with the source code.
            Check out this portlet:

            You can also verify if the user is allowed to access it before redirect.

            Hope this help.
