instead of <%= "wcount" %> you should use <%=Integer.toString(wcount) %>

No. First of all, scriptlets shouldn't be used at all in modern JSPs.

Secondly, the conversion to string is completely unnecessary. <%= wcount %> would be sufficient.

But again, modern JSPs should be using the EL, not scriptlets.
