The API you use to access Active Directory as well as the other, more complete LDAP servers is the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI). You can find tutorials on it at places like the Oracle (formerly Sun Java) website.
It's preferable to put the JNDI code in a JavaBean and have your JSPs reference the bean over coding JNDI scriptlets. But then that's true for scriptlets in general.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
