Hey there,
Below is my code on a jsp page using jquery. I can get everything to work on java side and get value back just fine. But I can never get it outside the brackets at "Here2: " to populate the val entry field. the System out "Here1:" works.
If I move the populating of the entry field up within the success brackets a I get formatting errors. What am I doing wrong here?

You are mixing server-side processing with client-side processing. Things don't work that way.

Read this article to understand how JSP operates and why it does not interact with client-side JavaScript.

TLDR: JSP is executed on the server prior to the page being sent to the browser, while JavaScript is executed in the browser after the page has been received.

Also, JSP scriptlets have been obsolete for 16 years. (Yes, 16 years.) You should be using the EL and JSTL rather than scriptlets.
