Ebedding JavaScript or printing it to jsp/html page through Java

Hi Experts,

I would like to find out an efficient / appropriate way to display JavaScript in a jsp page; the JavaScript changes based on values in my Java code.  For now I've been using the out.println, as show bellow, to put into the jsp page but I'm not sure if that's how its supposed to be done.  Any recommendations or words of wizdom?

              switch ($nFrame) {
                        case 1:      // Top frame
                            global.out.println("<title>"+ frameTitle +"</title>");
                            global.out.println("<script language=\"JavaScript\" type=\"text/JavaScript\">");
                            global.out.println("function TabClick(href, target) {");
                            global.out.println("if (window.parent.parent.NewPageLoading == \"YES\") {");
                                global.out.println("alert('ANOTHER PAGE IS CURRENTLY BEING LOADED. PLEASE TRY AGAIN AFTER THIS LOADING SESSION HAS ENDED.')");

Is this in a servlet or a JSP?

it looks more like a servlet as you are embedding HTML in Java code. In a JSP you should embed the Java code in the HTML.

//blah, some processing
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
 switch ($nFrame) {
  case 1:     // Top frame
    alert('AN ALERT');
 break;case 2:
    alert('ANOTHER ALERT');
break ;default:
    alert('DEFAULT ALERT');
//blah, rest of code
