I am attempting to create a bean the produces dynamic output to the called function from a JSP. I have the data producing the output but not sending it to the JSP. In JSP I could simply use the syntax out.print(variable), but in a bean I can't. Is it possible to extend a class to have the ability to use out.print? If so how? System.out.print does produce the desired effect but not to the HTML format. What's the difference? Thanks in Advance, Newbie Stewart
Stewart this is a JSP question, I'll move it there for you...

Stewart In a JSP out is one of the implicit vaialbes created for you by the container. It is a variable of type JspWriter. It is associated with the PrintWriter object from the ServletResponse class so it writes to that output stream - ie the response that is sent to the browser. If you have a bean that is producing output that needs to be printed you can just send the output back to the JSP and have it print it to the browser.
