I have some java, jsp files as well as web.xml in office. I 'd like to put them in eclipse to run it. but it didn't work..

what do I need to do besides putting all the files there?

btw, does anyone have any suggestion on a good jsp book?

Moved to the IDEs forum where eclipse is discussed.

By primary suggestion for reading is the JSP Specification.

Just dumping your files in a directory (or even a proper directory structure) and starting Eclipse isn't going to magically transform that collection of bits and bytes into a working web application.

You should indeed read the spec, and the tutorials and instructions that come with your application server.

As to good books, see the book list on the Ranch. And do get some of the most recent books, many older books are extremely outdated.

And Eclipse as downloaded doesn't include any support for JSPs. There are Eclipse plugins you can install that do support web application development, though.
I agree. Here's the link:
