There is NO particular IDE for creating JSP files only, I know Eclipse Europa, Netbeans has a very good support for JSPs EL, JSTL, etc functionality. You just need to read a tutorial or two to get stated with them.

And if you're more concerned about Look and Feel, then go for Dremviewer or any HTMl builder software to design HTML code which can be incorporated later into JSPs.

Hi,

I have installed eclipse but I don't know how should I add the exsisting code that I have to it.

The only menu option that I find is to create a new project, which is not what I want to do.

Can you please help.

Neha

This is more specific question for 'IDE-other-tools' forum section. Anyways, If you want to import existing source code developed using Eclipse, then try
File > Import > Existing Project.

Else, if there are some JSP files which you want to copied into a existing web project, then its simple, Just Copy Paste the files into a projects folder.

Else
Elaborate little more.

Hi Neha,

If you are using Eclipse 3.1, please follow the below steps to use your exisiting code to create a project.

Step1: File -> New -> Project.
You will get a dialog box to choose your project type.
Step2: After seleting the corresponding project type, click on 'Next'
Step3: In the 'Create a new project' dialog box, click on the 'Create project from existing source 'radio button.
Step4: In the Directory textbox, give your path of source code of existing application.
Step5: Read the other options and select appropriately whichever you need. Otherwise click on 'Finish' button.

Regards,
Shobana

Please be sure to ask IDE questions in the IDEs forum. I have moved this post there for you.
