why don't u do a simple project initially to get a feel of JSP ? I think an online shopping mall project is good one to start off. U can implement features like User regitration,user login,session handling,shopping cart etc. U'll learn how to use JDBC also in the process. I tried the same thing intially though i used both servlets and JSP. I tell u, it gave me a lot of satisfcation at the end of the day since i could learn HTML,JSP and Servlets in one project. Thats gonna give u good start.

To be honest, all the suggestions so far seem to complicated for a first project. I suggest something really simple, such as a notebook.
Start with a system that gives you a blank textarea, allows you to edit it and submit it to the server, then shows you what you saved.
Then extend it to allow creating several named pages, and chosing which one to edit.
Then add sessions and login to give you your "own" page when you first log in.
Then add authorization checking to allow some users to see some pages, and prevent them from seeing others.
Then add storing the pagest to/from a database using JDBC.
Each of the steps above is reasonably simple, but helps you understand a different aspect of JSP. Servlets and JDBC. Only when you've done something like this small, simple project would I even consider tackling somthing like on-line shopping.
Take one step at a time.

This will give you some interesting and practical practice projects for some slightly advanced topics.
