How do you make JSPs searchable by Google?

I am planning a JSP site that is connected to a database. The title, the heading tags, and content are all to be pulled from a database. I need to be able to make this site searchable by Google and I don't know how. I don't even know how to search for the answer. How do I make a data driven JSP site searchable by Google like a blog would be? I need it so that each returned JSP page can show up in a Google search results page. Thanks.

You have links to the generated pages just like you do for static pages. This only works if you have a finite set of pages - in other words, the same URL returns similar content each time. For example, in the is forum each thread comes out of the database.

Do you not think blogs are database-driven?

The source of the page is pretty much irrelevant. As Jeanne points out, it's how it appears to the web that matters.
