1. you can use JWS to host your JSP's.you have to place the files in the directory called public_html 2.you just call the Jsp file as we call an html file.the JWS does the rest. any jsp book will give you all the information
Only Java Webserver Ver.2.0 has the capability to process the JSP files, and u can also use tomcat and other jsp engine or server to process the jsp files. If you are using Java Webserver then just type the whole jsp file in a text editor and save it with .jsp extension and place it in root:\javawebserver 2.0\public_html and the rest will be taken care by JWS. If u want to use tomcat server just follow the installation instructions. There is no need to compile the jsp file. Whenever you call the jsp file in the form action method, the webserver will handle the request to the jsp engine and the jsp engine will compile the jsp file in to a temporary servlet and generate the dynamic content, so there is no need to compile it. Remember the compilation occurs for the first time only. I hope this information will be useful to you. Loke.
