Hi,

I'm new to developing JSP.. and i'm currently using Netbeans for JSP. Netbeans provides apache 6.0 automatically (or installed) and hence, jsp pages work fine from browser invocation.

I wanted to know whether it's a good idea in terms of industry standard to use Netbeans for JSP or Eclipse to develop web applications? Any suggestions in this regard would be great.

Also, im currently working with problems and concepts with JSP Complete Reference. I have a chapter here titled : "JSP TAG EXTENSIONS:which talks about Custom Tags, Tag Handlers, Tag Library API. Is this the same as JSTL ? which i'm very eager to learn, or JSTL and JSP tag extensions different?

Please give me some ideas about them. Thank you.

You mean Tomcat. Not Apache. When the term "Apache" is used by itself, it almost always means the Apache Web Server which is not a Servlet/JSP container.

Neither. If you need to rely upon an IDE, you're doing it wrong.

The JSTL is a specific instance of a tag library.
