Servlet is designed to do processing but not display, JSP designed to do display but not processing.

That is an implementation detail that has no bearing on when JSPs should be used and when servlets should be used.

Not really. JSPs can use mechanisms such as the JSTL, EL, custom tags, tag files, and other mechanisms geared towards creating views. Mimicking these in a servlet would not only be difficult, but foolish.
