Hello
I am trying to construct within a servlet an email with a hyperlink made up of the components. What I cant seem to do is escape successfully and have the resulting string include the ""
I want to appear in the message bode <a href="serverNameAndURI">clickMe</a>
I have tried building it with StringBuffer but still cant get the " correct. Can someone help with the proper technique and syntax.

In Java, quote characters within string literals are escaped with the backslash character (\).

you can write it as :

<blockquote>code:
<pre name="code" class="core"> <a href="\"serverNameAndURI\"">clickMe</a> </pre>
</blockquote>
