I am simply producing an html page with javascrpt from Servlet and passing a variable to javascript

String name="hello";
As I know about Servlet is server site and javascript is client side but if it doesn't work and get the error, Does anybody know if i have to pass the value from Servlet to javascript then what is the other way to do it?
