JSP Editor

Hi all,
Currently, I am working on a web application which includes JSP and tomcat as web server. At present I'm usingFront Page for developing interface and after developing interface I insert necessary JSP scriptlets and expression in the page.
But it is proving a nightmare for me since if I make slightest mistake it takes tomcat a lot of time to compile and run the JSP page.THe problem becomes for severe when I have to use Java Scriptlets for developing the interface dynamically.

Can any body suggest generally what approach is used for web development in JSP?
Is there any JSP editor which can provide drop-down box for suggesting available JSP action , java methods and HTML elements just like in .Net framework.

Thank You

For JSP I'm using NetBeans.

Almost perfect autocompletion and JSP debug. I used to work with Lomboz in eclipse, but it was just syntax highlighting.

Thanks, Prafulla Patil

The best free editor that I have till date is Bea Workshop 3.2. It has good features and upon registering(free) one may use it for 1 year absolutely free. MyEclipse is not free for use.

DreamWeaver is the best tool (but it is expensive)
