Gack, sorry -- too terse :-)

Tomcat is an open-source servlet container, which is what you need
to run JSPs -- <http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/>

The mailing list will be helpful:
	<mailto:tomcat-user-subscribe at jakarta.apache.org>

One thing to keep in mind is that there's a lot more to JSP/servlets
than just writing in Java -- it's the capabilities of the container,
as defined in the servlet spec, that provide a lot of the advantage.
Keep a copy of the servlet spec handy to reference:

And "JDK" is the old term for what's now the "J2SE v 1.4.2_06 SDK",
the Java runtime + compiler and associated support files that you'll
need to run Tomcat and develop your own JSPs -- get it here:

And feel free to ask for any further clarification on any of that!
