You may probably incorporate a webservice that provides these values and output the results on to your JSP.

Just a idea...

Hi, I dont think we have any free services to access NSE quotes. I had the same requirements sometime ago and I implemented using the HTML parsing. There are numerous sites which displays the current price of the stock when you send the stock code as the query parameter.

Parse the return HTML (using regex) and get the price part of any exchange BSE/NSE. The only issue here is, if the site changes its display, then you may have to modify your parser also.

I wouldn't expect there to be a free web service for this. A paid one, yes - but not free. For example, this page has an API. It costs money for them to provide the quotes real-time. Similarly, for this reason it is often illegal to screen-scrape to get the information. For example, Google has policies against screenscrapers, but provides a limited free API to get the same inforamtion.
