Document is a Java object. It doesn't make sense to return a Java object in a browser. Instead you would return the XML character data to the user for display. (Also, this is better done in a servlet than a JSP. JSP is about presentation.)

Hi,
I have not done for xml
But if you want a json object you can use json tag library in jsp to create a json object.
Which will get by the request from the browser.

To return this document in a servlet:



Thats the basic pattern to write the document out.
In this case is uses the servlet output stream to provide the xml response to the client.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
