For Dynamic HTML pages with Data coming from a DB, how can we efficiently generate the HTML code from the servlets.
Is there an easy way to embed data into a pre defined html form easily. One problem i am facing is a html page has lot of double quotes in the html code and it is a big chore to convert all the double quotes to single quotes when generating the HTML string.
I was just curious how everyone else is doing this.

your best bet is to use a combination of jsp and servlets. Put you presentation logic in the jsp and data/backend logic in your servlets. It makes things easier to maintain as well.
good luck
