using variables as values in a form control

I've a form which is created in a while loop. I would like to use one of the variables generated in the while loop as a value in the text area of my form control. My code is as follows:
String myName;
While (condition){
myName = "name"+i;
out.println("<td>" + "<form name='form1'>"+ "<textarea name="text1" value="<%=myName%>">"+"</td>");
i++;
}
This code generates the following error:
unclosed string literal       "<textarea name="text1" value=\"<%=i

How can i resolve this?

make it like this:

out.println("<td>" + "<form name='form1'>"+ "<textarea name=\"text1\" value=\""+myName+"\">"+"</td>");

you cannot have <%=somthing%> inside your JSP. Its used to print inside the HTML. for example, this is correct format:

<%
  String myName;
  While (condition){
     myName = "name"+i;
%>
      <td> <form name='form1'> <textarea name="text1" value="<%=myName%>"> </td>
<%
      i++;
   }
%>
