JSPs respond to HTTP requests.
To invoke one from the command line, you would need to find or write a program that can generate an HTTP request. If you're sitting at a Unix box, there are several out there (wget, lynx, etc..). I don't know if there are any for Windows.

Writing one shouldn't be difficult.
There is a complete set of libraries for doing so in Java.
They can be found here:
