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.
