you mean something like this?

<%
String s = "test";

Hi Dawson,

Yeah I am looking out for the same functionality. But can we be albe to access the variable used in html/jsp inside javascript.

i tried with this earlier, but I am not getting the output. Are there any other options?

JSP is a server-side technology whereas javascript runs on client-side. What are you trying to acheive? Please post your code snippet.
