What's this got to do with the server? HTML and embedded JavaScript are used and executed in the browser.

"Server-side JavaScript" means that the script is executed on the server; that is possible only if you use a library like Rhino in the web app.

I didn't. If by "do server side work with Javascript" you mean that the JavaScript is generated on the server, then you are correct. But everything that's served to a browser is generated by the server, so that's kind of a trivial statement. Of course you can use whatever means a Java web app provides to generate that script code, including customizations based on a user's session. But in terms of execution, JSPs and JavaScript are completely separate from one another.
