jsp and servlet question (should be simple)

I'm new to using JSP so this question should be simple.  I have a servlet already created that runs a process and generates a message, and i have an html page already created.  

What i want to do is simply display the message in the html.  My question is how would i get the message from the servlet to the jsp page?
Would i just store the message in the session variable in the servlet and pull it out from the session in the jsp page, and if so how can this be done?

Hey jaggernat thanks for the response.

I understand how to use the Printwriter in a servlet but i'm trying to determine if there is an easy way to pass information from a servlet to a JSP page.  My reason for doing this is because the html page is rather complicated and i would prefer not to generate it in the servlet since it is already created.

is there an easy way to pass the information from servlet to jsp?

put the informaiton in session (in servlet)  and retrieve it in the jsp.
you would use

session.setAttribute("objname",obj)   in servlet

and

session.getAttribute("objname");   in the jsp
