I am trying to create an array as a String and then use a JSP bean:write tag to display the array as javascript. The problem I am running into is the double quotes are not appearing as double quotes when I view source of the page. The double quotes are shown as ""e;". Any ideas how I can get the javascript to display the double quotes?

I am just getting into this Java stuff so this is a shot in the dark. Most serverside code will spit out the entities which is the proper way for characters to be displayed in HTML. You need to turn that off. I think it is done with this:

<bean:write name="foobar" filter="false"/"

I agree. Here's the link:
