Hi,
Can someone please help me with the working of pageContext.getOut().print()?

Suppose i use many custom tag in my jsp and in each custom tag if i use pageContext.getOut().print(), then will the print() send the output to the browser each time? or it is written to the broswer only once?

The "out" here is the current JspWriter stream being used for client response.
Writing to it writes to the response buffer.

The output will be sent to the browser when
- the jsp/servlet finishes being processed
- the buffer is full
- the buffer is flushed manually.

So all of your print statements will be reflected in the response output.
The response is normally sent to the browser in a single chunk.

So if I understand the question correctly, that would make it your second guess: it is written to the browser only one.
