Hey, I want to try JSP just to fool around with it, but I'm not sure where to begin. What do I need to compile/display JSP? What web hosting service can I use that supports JSP? Any hints will be greatly appreciated.


I never know what to put in my signature...

There are several open source containers that you can download for free to get started doing development on your own machine.

I like Tomcat.

Aha, I'm starting to see how this works. Which version do you suggest? 6.x?
