Debugging JSPs in Struts 2 application

I am using Eclipse as a development platform for a Struts 2 app. I am stepping through JSP code and wondering how to look at variables created by the Struts 2 tags. Does anyone know how to do that? Also, is there a way to look at and evaluate objects on the ValueStack and ActionContext?

The debug tag outputs the values of the ValueStack.
I've gotten a lot of mileage just printing out values to the log via a scriptlet at the head of a JSP. Never had to dig into a JSP with a debugger, though.
