Hi I'm sorta new to JSP and somewhat familiar to Java. I've read some documentations on servlets and have tried some simple examples on a Tomcat server. After working out the examples, I get confused with JSP. For instance, when do I use JSP and when do I use servlet? I would like to find out if there are some tutorials for JSP.

Thanks.

Hi John,

Typically you use JSPs for any presentation you need to do and servlets and beans for the processing/logic. Try and keep as much logic out of your JSPs as possible and keep presentation out of your servlets.

Standard methods of achieving those goals, which you might like to look at once you've got used to the JSP and servlet basics, are the JSTL (JSP Standard Tag Library) and MVC frameworks like Struts. Another recent development is JavaServer Faces (JSF).

You might benefit from looking at Sun's JSP Tutorial and Servlet Tutorial.
