You don't call servlets methods from JSP to get some data. What you usually do it get some data from the servlet, put it in the request, and forward to a JSP file. You then grab the data from the request. I recommend you to read something about servlets and JSP first.

Eric Tan,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

In an effort to help you get the most from our forums, we've compiled a
list of tips for asking questions here. You can find the list in our
FAQ section here.
In particular please see:

Abbreviations such as "u" or "ur" in
place of "you" and "you are" or "you're" confound language translation software making
it hard for our non-English speaking members to read your posts.
"Izzit" is not a word in the English language.

Again, welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with your question.

In answer to your question, yes you can use Javabeans for this.
Explaining all of this is beyond the scope of a webforum.

I suggest picking up a book on Servlets/JSP and working through it before trying to tackle a real commercial app using JSP.
There are also a lot of tutorials on the web.

Binding Javabeans to the various scope objects to make them availaible for use in JSPs is a subject that would be covered in any good JSP book or tutorial.
