What is the best JSP Editor now available in the market? It should handle Servlets as well. I am using Windows OS.

What features are important to you?

What editors have you already investigated?

Did you read the faq?

"best" is indeed subjective. You'll need to be clearer on what you are looking for in an "editor".

Sorry for the bad question. I use TextPad to develop standalone java applications. I am new to JSP, though I have some knowledge on server side programming. Following are the features I am looking for in an editor.
[1] Automatic Code Generation (mainly JSP Scripts).
[2] Testing.
[3] Drag n Drop style not needed, but typing of first letter should show the possible JSP scripts.
Those are main features the Editor should support.
Bye bye

In Eclipse, just type a letter then press 'Ctrl + SpaceBar' and this adds the remaining for you.

For JSP I'm using NetBeans.

Almost perfect autocompletion and JSP debug. I used to work with Lomboz in eclipse, but it was just syntax highlighting.
