There is no in built support for JSP in Eclipse. But there is JSP Tomcat plugin for Eclipse which you need to download. I havent tried it though. I use Netbeans and it is a nice IDE for trying out JSP/Servlets due to its autocomplete and syntax highlighting features.

But is it good to pratice on Netbeans IDE for those who dont have much experience in JSP and servlet because it is learning time for those.
