This question would probably get better response in the Servlet JSP Forum. I'm going to move it there.

What do you mean by 'show time left' in your page. The time left for what? It's easy enough to spit out a SimpleDateFormat, but that time comes from somewhere.

I wanted to set Exam time, say 1:30 min.I wanted to diaplay this on top of Online test page.Timmer should go from 1:30 to 1:29 and so on till timeout or user clicks finish button
I know with Date.getHours() and getMinutes() we can getcurrent time .How I can set my own timer

There are probably lots of ways to do this, one that comes to mind is to have an instance variable that is the finish time (time + 1:30) and then you could compare current time to finish time.
If your exam spans several pages, you could either pass the value or use a bean and get it from there (any other ideas, please post).
If this is just jsp, the time will be static on the page - showing the time left when the servlet generated the page. If you need to show a running clock, I think you need an applet.

You could also do it with JavaScript which the JSP could put on the page.
