Hi. I'm new to using java servlets.


The model I'm trying to create looks like this


Front web page(not a part of webapp for within Tomcat; just a standalone HTML page) -> Java servlet(in Tomcat) -> Remote Machine(Do some work here)

then the response generated in remote machine is delivered back to the web page.


How do I "return" something back to the web page from servlet?



I created an Ajax request from a javascript attached to the web page, which is sending a GET request to the servlet. I want to have the servlet give back a String to the web page.


In PHP, I'd use the print() method.


Do I just use Printwriter.println()? Or Printwriter.write()?



Thanks in advance.

I believe, either of the two are ok (unless you are worried about efficiency).
