Java Server Pages are just another way of creating a servlet, using a mixture of HTML and specialized tags. The idea with JSP is to insulate the designer of HTML pages from the nitty-gritty details of servlet programming.

Parnini:
As William stated, JSPs are (preferably) used to display dynamic content on your browser while Servlets are used to control the flow in a Web site, while communicating with other components (like EJBs) to gather data to be displayed later by the JSPs.
Technically, JSPs are compiled into Java Servlets and at the moment of execution they are indistinguishable from regular servlets by the Servlet Container.
