1.JSP page calls session bean.
2.Session Bean call entity bean.
3.The entity bean after updating the database gives a message to session bean which is forwarded to the jsp.
4.JSP displays the information.

This scenario you are mentioning here is very common. Any EJB/J2EE book should cover it (and most J2EE tutorials in the web).
