Can I stop the following contents in a .jsp file when certain condition is met? Such as:

<%
  if (condition == true)
    Stop the output
%>

Following are the other contents in this page.

(These contents shouldn't be displayed if the condition = true.)

Yes, you can.That is a correct method.
If you want to disabled html contains. Try this,

<%
if (condition == true) {
%>
html things.
<%
}
%>


Is that what you want?

This can end the output. But this is not what I want.
Because the "{" and the "}" are seperated by many comlicated Html mess. It's not very clear and easy to maintain.
Is there any usages in JSP like output.end or output.finish?

I think it is do able
There are two ways to solve that:

1-
<%
  if (condition==true){
%>
  <input type="text"> or any HTML code
<%
  }else{
%>
  <HTML CODE>
<%
  }
%>

2-
<%
  PrintWriter out=response.getWriter();
  if (conditon==true){
       out.println("<HTML>");
   }else{
       out.println("any html code");
  }
%>

you could simple do
<% if (condition == true) return; %>
which will cease execution of the servlet.

try this

<%
if(cond==true){
response.sendRedirect("a.html");
}
else{
response.sendRedirect("b.html");
%>

Note: a.html is the page that display all your output.
      b.html is the empty page.

hope it helps.

pellep's comment is close to the solution what I want.

sushifish's comment also works. But sendRedirect is related to HTTP header. One should be careful if he uses this method.

return; will ignore remaining HTML tags, and makes them unmatch. I think current browsers can deal with this.
So I will accept pellep's answer.

Thank you.
