Clientside variables with Java Server Pages

Hello,
I am new to JSP, having been an ASP programmer, and have come across the following problem:

When I am writing clientside Javascript in an ASP page, and I want to refer to a serverside ASP variable, I use the following syntax: "<%=pCounter%>" (quotes are included in the code clientside but not serverside).

ie lstrurl = lstr1 & "<%=pCounter%>"  & lstr2

Is there a similar syntax in JSP??  I have a similar problem in that I want to refer to a serverside JSP variable in my clientside Javascript code, in a JSP page.  All help much appreciated!

Thanks,
Paul Trimming

actually, what you have is exactly what it would look like in JSP too. :-)

<script>
var lstrurl = lstrul + "<%=JSPVariable%>"
</script>

appends JSPVariable to the ClientSide JavaScript Variable lstrurl.
