while I understand that you are a beginner, most of these
are answered in the first chapter of a JSP book. please take
some time to read these or go through the online tutorials
on the sun web pages (i already answered your other post).
Obviously, you don't expect someone to reply with the whole
JSP intro, when it is already accessible on a lot of websites.
Atleast, not from me, sorry!
I don't mean to discourage you or be harsh, but I expect you
to do some homework before you ask. Hope you take this is the
right way. Thanks for understanding.

yeah as much as i hate to be rude by concurring with satya it is true that even novice question should be above a certain threshold to merit a response :-)
but to answer to the post you need a web server capable of serving jsp's . I use JRun for windows, i think it has little or no learning curve, but most ppl seem to recommend apache.
you can get an evaluation of Jrun from and apache is a freeware at

I agree. Here's the link:
