Converting java to jsp is not hard. jsp IS java wrapped in html. In general,  just put your java code in <% %> tag on a jsp  and you basically converted a java class into jsp

BUT there is no easy way to convert a swing based custom ui into jsp. This is due to the limitation of html.   You can:

1) Use an applet instead of jsp, then it is very easy to convert. Basically you just wrap the ui you have now in an applet so it shows up on browser. The downside is some users may not be able to view applets due to security, browser, or plugins they (don't) have.

2) Use javascript to recreate the tree view. There are many tree based templates on the web, do a search on google

Thanks for answering the question!

I placed the Java code within <% %>

This is the code scriptlet -
<%
public NodeProducer createProducer(Node[] anode) {
..... bla bla..


}

%>

this is the error message .. what am I doing wrong ?

 illegal start of expression
public NodeProducer createProducer(Node[] anode) {

If you want to include classes in jsp you have to make a JavaBean

that's just a regular java class file that you call from within your jsp page.
for example.
let's say you have the class MyClass in pacakge mypackage

package mypackage;

public class MyClass {

  public MyClass() {
  }

  public myMethod(){
 
  DO STUFF IN HERE
  }

}

you would in your jsp file include this line.
<jsp:useBean class="mypackage.MyClass " id="myObject" scope="page" />

you can now call the method myMethod like so:
<%
myObject.myMethod;
%>

When using beans there are 3 things to keep in mind

1)   you need a package.
      add this statement to all your .java files.
      package mypackage;

2)   your bean statements must be called like this..
      <jsp:useBean class="mypackage.MyClass " id="myObject" scope="page" />

3)   You must be using this directory structure

-jspfiles
-WEB-INF
     -classes
         -mypackage
             -MyClass.class

hope that helps
Cheers,

Thanks for all the comments from everyone!

I am trying to do the following-

I have Java code that creates a tree view in Java- Treeview I mean Parent tree and when you click on it the folder shows its children recursivly.

I want to create a tree view in JSP now, with the same behavior.

If you can help me exactly with this I will give points to everyone on this querstion since all the answers are good and I will create a new question with more details on treeview.

thanks

No its from the database and I use Java to getParent, getChildren, getChildCount, etc..
I have the sample JSP page working and the data from it looks something like this
network/   os/  computer/  

if the user clicks on 'computer' the JSP page displays -
network/   os/  computer/
computer1
computer2
...
if the user clicks on 'computer1' the JSP page displays -
network/   os/  computer/ computer1
hp
dell
...

and so on...

- So the tree vie wis working - I need to modify it to use the folders, open folder, close folder images.
