Your best bet would be to post this in the JSP forum - I'll move it there now.

I suppose you looking for Java application server. They can be JRun - good interface and simple to use $5000.
Tomcat - free
All these servers can be connected to an external webserver.

Hi,
If you wanna buy a software then best option from my experience would be WebSphere appication server, coz it has debugging options, which is a big headache in JSP.
If you are looking for free servers then Tomcat and many other servers are available.

Hi!,
The best option today is "TOMCAT". This is actually not a web server. It is an implementation but acts like a web server if used with JDK and JSDK. Better than any other web server. Take the latest version. The advantages are:
1. Freely available
2. Open Source
3. Good response time
4. Supports all of the APIs and servlets.
5. Supports the user programmed APIs/Packages
6. All other supports like session maintenance are supported like any web server.
7. Available for all OS except 95/98.
