HTML Template for Java Web Service  RSS feed

I have read some tutorials about web services and I see that I can return HTML to the client of the service via concatenating String. It reminds me of embedding html inside servlet.

In the example, it's very clear that they embed html code inside Java code:
public String getHtml() {
return "<html lang=\"en\"><body><h1>Hello, World!!</body></h1></html>";

My question is: is there any template system for Java Web Service which helps me build HTML document and return it to client? Something that act like a JSP to servlet. I don't like to embed HTML inside web service method this way.

I have asked this question on StackOverflow but some idiots there just down voted my questions without telling me reasons.
Author and all-around good cowpoke

If you are talking about a RESTful web service architecture, why not use JSP?
If you are talking about a SOAP web service - no, you are stuck with the very formal SOAP API for which there are toolkits.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
