Can someone tell me how to return a object from the servlet to the jsp page? Any sample codes for servlet and jsp portions?

Newbie here.

The usual way of allowing servlets and JSP to share objects is by attaching the object to either a HttpSession or the ServletContext. It depends on whether the object contains data specific to a particular user or if it is more general.
NOTE: you can only share objects this way between servlets and JSP in the same "web application."
The methods are all in the servlet API - you should have a copy if you are going to be serious about servlets.
