Can swing components be used with JSP? How?

I won't say NO straight away, because I have little experience in swing.
However, I would argue like this ...
1. Swing components are GUI building components.
2. JSP does not have a gui. ( It outputs some data in a Stream which is rendered by some other client program {browser} to be translated into a gui )
3. Following this logic, I would rather say it probably makes little sense to use swing components.

you cant use swing with jsp.
however you can use applets in html page or jsp page with swing, or you can try the Sever Faces which add many nice gui to a regular html page.
