The < and > symbols are being changed to < and > in my return string.
So on my HTML page I am literally seeing on the page:

<script language='javascript1.2' src='/webstore/newshop/coremetrics/v40/eluminate.js'></script><script language='javascript1.2' src='/webstore/newshop/coremetrics/cmdatatagutils.js'></script><script language='javascript1.2'>cmSetClientId('90313131',true,newshop.com); </script>

Instead of it being part of the HTML like I want.

How can I prevent this in my java class?

Your java code is not converting the html entities and you're not providing us with the type of application so we'll have to guess. In case of JSF you could use

You can't, because it's not happening in the Java class.

As Wouter pointed out, without showing us how the returned result is being used, all we can do is guess. My guess is improper use of <c:out>.

Sorry about not showing how I am using it in the application.

I am using JSF.

I tried but I am still getting a conversion and it is actually displaying the string in my web browser.

UPDATE:

I got it to work:


Thanks for the help!
