there is one solution to ur problem.....
store the javascript variable in a form field and then set it to the variable of in the jsp.... this form is a dummy form which on submit goes to javascript and the back to the same form
for example.......

<script language="javascript">
function meth()
var i=0;
<%! int x=0; %>
<form name="myform" action="temp1.jsp" onSubmit="return meth()">
<input type="text" name="t1" value='<%=request.getParameter("t1") %>' >
<input type="submit" value="submit" >

<% if(request.getParameter("t1")!=null) x=Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("t1")); %>
<%= x%>

tough we r not supposed to use scripting in jsp but thats how u want want to set the value of x.....
hope this will help u.......
let me know...
