    I think when the user clicks the hyper link the request should go to your program otherwise I can't imagine how to implement you logic without changing other programs. If the hyper link was generated by a previous JSF request you definitely can configure the from-outcome. If the hyper link was geneated by a non-JSF request, the server side program to receive the request can forward the request to a.jsf or b.jsf based on your criteria logic.

    Thank you for repling. the hyperlink is generated fron non-jsf application.if the hyperlink point to a.jsp, where should I implement the forward logic to b.jsp? in the phaselinsner? navigation rules? or in pageBean of a.jsp?
