Other than full blown IDEs, are there any good tools out there to format JSP
based on some formatting rule set?.
Eclipse plugins would be great!.

what's wrong with good oldfashioned handcrafting code?
I've been looking at a plugin to Eclipse that gives me code completion for custom tags (and HTML) along the lines of what TopStyle Pro gives for standard HTML and CSS, but haven't found one yet that I like.

See MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench (, a low cost full featured JSP development and debugging environment ($30). It provides jsp and custom tag completion, validation, syntax coloring, preview, native debugging for JSR045 servers, Struts code generation wizards, and lots of other development tools for EJB and EAR development and deployment.
The next MyEclipse release will include a WYSIWYG designer for HTML, JSP-Struts ui tags and JSF. We'll post info on the site in the next week or so with screenshots; betas planned for early May.
