No.

Servlet -> server side code
Javascript -> client side code

They simply don't mix.

Most people think browser side only when the term JavaScript is mentioned, but JavaScript as a language can be executed on the server side.

Naturally it can only affect server side entities, NOT the client browser API.

A variety of scripting languages are supported by Java as explained in this article.

DWR goes a long way towards bridging the Java/JavaScript gap, but you might want to hold off on that until you're more familiar with the underlying technologies.
