Can a JSP page incorpoprate AWT and Swing components? I was looking at the JSpinner class and it's pretty cool...
Thanks!

JSP generates HTML or similar text.
The only way a HTML page can incorporate AWT or Swing components is with a Java applet. You can certainly use JSP to generate the page but you have to program the applet separately.

I'll have to play with it a little and see what happens.
Thanks!
