It's all a matter of using HTML, JavaScript and CSS to create the elements that create "tabs".

As this has nothing to do with JSP, it's been moved to the HTML forum.

For example, one possible implementation is the tab widget of jQuery UI..

There are many others, or you could build your own if you know HTML, CSS and JavaScript well.

Another possibility, if you are knowledgable in Java, but not in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, is to use the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) to generate a web site from Java code.

I'm not personally a fan of this approach, but it might be a viable option for people or companies that have only Java expertise.

We're not going to sidetrack this topic with a discussion of GWT, but suffice it to say that I can hand-code much better HTML, JavaScript and CSS without having a tool (with all its limitations) generating the code for me.
