Is this possible using JSP?

I'm pretty new to JSP, and was wondering if the following was possible. I would like to use JSP to create web pages, and then either have them displayed in a client browser, or simply created on the server and then e-mailed to a user. The idea is that we would e-mail the results to a customer for their own records, while our technicians would see the pages in their broswer. So, is it possible to 'redirect' the output from a JSP page to either a browser or a simple html file?

You can send email from Java. Look into the JavaMail API. A Google search for JavaMail will get you there quickly.

You can also incorporate this into your JSPs if you like. You may want to factor the email code out to a JavaBean, but that's up to you.

Many App servers have conatiner managed email sessions that can be accessed via JNDI from your app. Tomcat does.
