I guess you should post it to the IDE forum.

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 It has been replaced by JBoss Tools.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.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
