Hello,
I'd like to break into JSP and Servlet programming but I am confused about what software I need. I know there is Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, J2EE. Which of these is the recommended starting point for creating JSP's and Servlets?
thanks,
Frank

I suggest you start simple, with just Tomcat and a J2SE installation.
Tomcat comes with excellent examples for both JSP and servlets - when you understand how all the examples work you will have accomplished alot! Be sure to study the way entries in web.xml affect the operation of applications.
Tomcat comes with complete Javadocs for the servlet and JSP APIs - I like to have the entry point as a bookmark on my browser.
Download the servlet API and the JSP API (free pdf files) from Sun to serve as an ultimate source of answers.
