I have an anchor which redirects the user to another page. I want to know if it possible to execute an action before the redirection takes place.

Let's suppose I need to set some information in the session before redirecting the user to the url specified in the anchor. How can I do this?

I tried using

myAnchor.addEventListener(1000, Events.ON_CLICK, new EventListener<Event>() {
    public void onEvent(Event event) throws Exception {
        session.setAttribute("info", "some info");

but the event is captured after the redirection has occurred.

How can I do this?
