if you need some dynamic page then should be a jsp page, otherwise html would be ok.

Swing! never ever.

In this scenario wherein u r working with website u can go in for html if the page has only static contents or JSP if it has some dynamic contents rather than designing the view with swings.
While designing web applications HTML for static and JSP for dynamic is preferrable.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
