shun xmlspy.
It can completely corrupt your system if you try to remove it after the trial expires.
We tried it a few years ago and on uninstallation it messed up our registry completely. Just about every file association was changed to point to xmlspy (which was of course removed by then), while when installed it had had "only" xml, xsl, and other related stuff pointing to it (which it had done without asking, a major nono for common filetypes).

I also found it extremely unintuitive to use, and way overpriced.

For JSP editing I use mainly GVIM and Eclipse (with SolarEclipse plugin), JBuilder 2005 Developer and Enterprise also are supposed to have excellent editors (though I haven't tried those).

FYI: There is a vi plugin for Eclipse..
You'll have to google for it. I don't have the link handy

have you seen textpad, it is tiny, only syntax file need to be added, and its freeware, also jedit is there which is also freeware

hi megha!!!

Well i am not a java wizzard but what i suggest is that try doing it using notpad and dreamweaver.this will help u to know java more as u won't get any context help so you will learn about all the classes their constructors and everything... by heart.

why revive a month old thread to spam a product?
I've tried Gel and it's no good at all.

I've been looking for a free alternative for Gel. Until now, I haven't found a better one. What would you suggest ?

Eclipse is good, VI is good, Netbeans 4 is decent, JBuilder Foundation is good.

I think U should try notepad Initially,for better understanding of the situation.But If u really need to work on a good Editor,Then u can go for EditPlus.that is a very good Editor,B'coz u r new to JSP.
