Eclipse & JSP/EJB

We develop heavily with scriptlets That being said, I'm loving eclipse' code completion, debugging, etc. capabilities. However, it doesn't seem to "know" about JSP or how it relates to our EJB. In other words, I get no code completion - either with core Java classes, or with our EJB.
I've installed the solar eclipse plugin for decent JSP visual development. Do you know of other plugins that allow code completion in JSP? What about debugging JSP? Or maybe you have this working and I've just setup my project in a funky way..?
thanks in advance!

WSAD on top of Eclipse also has strong JSP code complete
