selvakumar, JBoss IDE is an old product that is no longer under development. It has been replaced by JBoss Tools. I would suggest using Eclipse 3.3 or 3.4 with JBoss Tools. Also, you should start by creating a Dynamic Web Project.

One more recommendation: is you are just now starting with JSP development, I recommend not relying on any IDE tools to do your work. Go ahead and use Eclipse as a text editor, but do all of the work to compile or package the web app from the command line. This way you will learn how a web app should be put together. This way, you will eliminate the IDE being part of the problem if something should go wrong.
