jsp output to a file

I want to send the output of a jsp file (ie, the html that the jsp page creates) to a file on the server.
Basically, I want to have the html that the user sees when they do view source from the browser, saved to a file on the server.
I know I can use FileOutputStream to create files on the server but I don't know what to pass into the write() method to write the output of the jsp page.
Thanks in advance.

PrintWriter pw = new PrintWriter(new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter("your.log")));
pw.println("print something here");
pw.print("\n print also something here");
pw.flush();// coz u used print();
pw.close(); //close the stream

Thanks for the reply.
So, since I want my output (html) to be written to a file do I have to print the following:
pw.println("the rest of the html....");
Or is the output stored in the buffer somewhere and could I just send the buffer contents to the printwriter?
I agree. Here's the link:
