I agree, doing this with a servlet is the right way to go.  However, because
this is already in production, it would be much simpler to change the jsp
than add a servlet at this point (which would require QA, updating the
server properties, etc.).

I have searched everywhere and can't find anything about telling tomcat not
to open the print writer.  I'm assuming it can't be done, however, if this
is wrong, please let me know.

If you are not going to be writing any HTML, why bother with JSP?
Why not do whatever it is you are doing with a servlet?
