I have used PMD for finding errors of java files in Eclipse IDE. But PMD is not working for finding errors in JSP files.Is there any way to find errors in JSPs?

The biggest restriction is that your JSP must be properly formed. However if you had a good modern JSP, it wouldn't have Java code in the first place and wouldn't need PMD to run against. Catch 22.
