You cannot compare jsp with swing because both are quite different technologies. JSP is used to build web-applications whereas swing is used to develop stand-alone applications.

That's like asking how to prove that a bicycle is better than a pitchfork.
What type of application are you trying to build?

Also, as Rao has shown, it's "Swing" not swings. There is no 's' at the end.

ok sorry for that but actually i am trying to build a application which will work on LAN and their will be one administrator and various clients. clients have to submit some reports and administrator will analyse that. i am a student and want to make this application in jsp but my teacher have some basic knowledge of java. so he asked me to describe in detail which will be better option.

Its very simple to answer.
If you are building a web based application then go for jsp or if you want to go for standalone application , then go for swings.

You have to develop the application in jsp as you want to access it in a LAN.

Why not I can use network classes/Swing combination in java and build the application. It not necessarily be a web application. Am I right??

You have to consider if you want to have a client-server application or web-based application. In a server client setup every user needs to install the client software on her machine (depending on the way software is distributed in your network) but the user interface can be more advanced as
Swing allows you to build a complex (alert) and nice looking GUI.

Web based application do need not to have its clients installed, users only need the a web browser and the link to your web-server (and hopefully a user account..). The UI capabilities are limited compared to a full client application and the learning curve for building a web-application is (in my humble opinion) higher.

dear Amit if you want to make this type of application for only lan than you can use RMI or Jsp.if you will use Rmi than you need to create front end by using Swing otherwise you can try Jsp,but jsp is much better because by using jsp you can extend your application for the worldwide.i have also made such type of application in RMI.
