You output JavaScript in exactly the same way as HTML from within your servlets.
An example would be
out.println("<script>alert('this is script')</script>");
If you are making heavy use of javascript, you should probably use JSP pages instead of servlets. Outputing lots of HTML/JavaScript is a very messy process that is prone to errors (quotes will cause you problems) and is very unmaintable.
