automation server can't create object ActiveXObject jsp

Below code snippet is completely working fine on IE when it is embedded in an HTML document.

          var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject"); // creating a Scripting FileSystemObject.
          var fh = fso.CreateTextFile("data.xml", true); // creating a file handler variable which is pointing to the given file.
          fh.WriteLine(str); // Writing str value to file through file handler variable.
          fh.Close(); // closing the file handler object.

But when I am embedding the same snippet in a JSP and trying execute on the same IE, it is failing at ""var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");"" and throwing a javascript error as "automation server can't create object".

I have gone through google and could not identify what might gone wrong.

if some had come across the same scenario, pls throw some light on this.
