hi guys,
is it possible to embed other GUI objects aside from the common form controls in a web page using JSP?
thanks.

JSP output can include any HTML markup which you
would use if you wrote an HTML page by hand. So
you can create anything with a JSP that you could
create with an editor.

Remember that a JSP page is merely a template for generating an HTML page to send to the browser. As such, there is no "magic" that will allow you te create GUI elements other than that provided by HTML. If you need complex GUI elements, you will need to resort to applets or other such embedded elements just like a "normal" HTML page.
