You can use jsp:include, with the address of the servlet.

Calling a JSP from a Servlet, or vice-versa, can be done using the RequestDispatcher interface, which is part of the Servlet 2.2 specification. Following is the code for sending output to a JSP page from a servlet:

javax.servlet.RequestDispatcher dispatcher = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/Requested.jsp");
request.setAttribute("Name","Pallavi");
request.setAttribute("Language","Java");
dispatcher.forward(request,response);


The following code shows the method of redirecting the user request to a servlet from a JSP page:

 
<%
        RequestDispatcher dispatcher = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/MyServlet");
        dispatcher.include(request,response);
%>
