I downloaded Tomcat but it's not working.
I'm not sure how I'm supposed to configure Tomcat so that it can receive the code from my JSP.file in Eclipse.

Your JSP files should be in your application folder inside tomcat's webapps folder. Do you have a DD configured ? What is your application directory structure ?

I had to create a dynamic Web project. I then put my JSP file under WEB-INF. Then I went to 'Show View' under Window on the toolbar and selected Server.
I had to start the Tomcat 5.5 from there. Now to get it to work in the url I have to type : http://localhost:8080/hi/tryout.jsp
How do I get it so I only have to type localhost:8080/tryout
with no "hi" which is the folder and no jsp extension?

There seems to be typo errors in your question. So have made some assumptions with my reply.

You mentioned that you type in the URL http://localhost:8080/hi/tryout.jsp to get it working.
I assume that "hi" is your context root.

If you want to type only http://localhost:8080/tryout and get the page tryout.jsp present in the root folder named "hi", then you need to do the following:

1. Make "hi" you default web app in Tomcat. Refer to tomcat docs for the same.

AND

2. Have the following lines in your web.xml file:
