Is there any way in JSP to set focus on an input field in a HTML form using JSP code, and not JavaScript?

No, there isn't. Remember, JSP is strictly a server-side technology, which is responsible for generating dynamic content in HTML, DHTML or XML format. Setting focus on specific input elements within an HTML form is strictly a client-side activity and consequently has to be performed using something like JavaScript.
