OTOH there are plenty of tutorials about how to do just that sort of thing
using the "model-view-controller" (MVC) pattern. Check out Java Server Faces
(JSF) and Struts for two excellent approaches.

Don't POST to a JSP, POST to a servlet. Do not put Java code ("scriptlet") in
your JSPs at all, ever. JSPs are for presentation, not logic.

At the end of its logic phase, the servlet (the "controller") would grab some
result object from the business logic (the "model") and forward it and all
action to the next JSP (the "view").
