What you mean by "System name"? Is it the client's platform or...?

client 's system name means client's computer(machine) name or client's computer(machine) description

You can do that if you use ActiveX Object in your JSP within Javascript

ActiveX is an IE proprietary scripting framework. It doesn´t work in alternative webbrowsers. Even then, this isn´t going to happen without getting a security warning or changing the IE security settings.

Bad idea at all.

If you really, really, need to get the client´s system name (why by the way? it´s usually better to elaborate about the actual problem instead of asking how to achieve a certain solution which may not be a good solution at all), then the best way to do it using Java is a signed applet or web start application which you embed in your JSP.
