Either using Servlets or JSP, how would I make an HTML link on my jsp page that would allow the user to download a table inside of Oracle as a CSV?
Thanks.

I do not know much about JSP. But your requirement can be met with an Oracle stored procedure. Check the below link for implementation of the stored procedure

You can provide link to the generated CSV file in your HTML file. The stored procedure can be executed on batch everyday (oracle jobs maybe) or execute on-demand basis (like button press)

Hope this helps!

Funny you should like to that post.  I'm already using that stored procedure to export to a local file.  I don't want to use the local file system, however.  I want to have everything directed to stdout.  Similar to how it is done using PHP with mysql:

The same process works for JSP.  See these questions asked and answered on EE about returning csv files in a JSP:

You have a lot of open questions -- it would be great if you went through and awarded points to the experts who have helped you.
