That's like asking "Can a hammer be used to replace all the other tools in the toolbox?"

Do you really want to try and saw boards with a hammer?

JSPs should be used as view components only. Servlets are required for performing control and processing.

Apart from the good reasons already mentioned, JSPs can't handle binary content, whereas servlets can.

what binary content like sounds, streaming video, pdf files . But Streaming video , pdf files we can do by JSP also .

So I think Processing , Controlling are the things which can't be handled by JSP . Am I Correct

No, you can't. It may incidentally work in some special cases, but generally it doesn't.

No. JSPs *are* servlets once the JSP is compiled. You *can* do all of that with a JSP. You *shouldn't*.
