In my spring, JSP based application, user is entering free from description in the text area. But when data is saved and displayed on the next (read only) page, entire text is wrapped in to single para. I want whole text to be saved as user enters it along with line spaces, newlines, tabs etc.

eg is as below.

below entered description when saved will get wrapped in to a single para and will not be dispayed as it looks below.I have posted this question on other forums and also tried finding solution online so please help.
