In simple and plain english could you please give me an idea what is JSP. Can you compare it with other languages (if they have something similair) or .NET. Yes I have seen a lot of tutorials/books about but I got lost. I want to get an idea before go deep and learn what is JSP. I know the basic of OOP and Java but not advance subjects. Thanks

There is a very nice tutorial on the Sun web site. I would start there.

hi Tamara,
Just to give you an idea, a JSP is represented by a file with a '.jsp' extension and is made up of html tags, java code or jsp-specific tags or a combination of these. It resides in the server and is used to render the results of processing requests from the browser. A 'container' (e.g. Tomcat) translates the JSP into a servlet, compiles it, and loads the class for use.

If you want some sort of comparison, it could be compared to ASP, PHP, CGI, and Javascript (sort of). There are probably some others that I am missing, but those are what I could think of.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
