I would like to start working with JSP but currently have not put much time into this technology. Could someone please tell me if I need to download a special API from Sun to create JSPs or if the standard SDK download has everythink that I need.
Thank you for your response.

Hi,
The standard Java 2 API does not contain JSP classes. You will need to download the JSP specific classes from Sun/other vendors.
You will also need a web server to test and deploy your applications.
Follow this link to know more. http://www.javasoft.com/products/jsp/download.html

Tomcat works quite nicely for learning. Go to
http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-tomcat-4.0/release/v4.0-b3/ and download jakarta-tomcat-4.0-b3.zip. This is beta 3 of Tomcat 4.0. Very easy to install - just unzip the .zip file and double-click on bin/startup. It has a built-in HTTP server (good enough for development and testing) and all the JSP/servlet API jar files.

You may want to get a book, or if you have little knowledge i'd get a book on beginning java.
