Eclipse in its most banal, downloaded form, is simply an awesome Java editor, capable of allowing you to create, compile and debug Java code written against the JDK.

Unfortunately, the JDK only included the basic Java packages, like java.util, java.lang, java.awt and java.swing. To develop Servlets and JSPs and EJBs, you need some form of J2EE tooling, or at least for you, a Servlet/JSP tooling.

IBM's Rational Application Developer is Eclipse with all sorts of J2EE tooling added in for you. Of course, it comes with a price tag.

Browse around eclipse.org, and you'll be able to find some 'plugins' that should allow you to do JSP and Servlet development. I've seen http://www.myeclipseide.com/ provide a bunch of plugins for eclipse at a pretty cheap price - cheaper than IRAD.

But, out of the gates, Eclipse won't allow you to do JSP and Servlet development. Sorry.

With Eclipse 3.2 you can work with jsp and servlet and even ejb just create an EAR project (you can find EAR project under j2ee section)and create a web module thats it

Hi,

I have setup eclipse with a tomcat plugin as described by this link:

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/library/os-ectom/

It works very well for me. I also had a free jsp editor that I found on the web. I can't remember exactly what it was called but if you google "eclipse jsp plugin" you should be able to find something okay.

Cheers, Jared.
