Download the Lomboz plugin. It's a general J2EE plugin for Eclipse with 
an excellent JSP editor. It also supports debugging of JSP (if your 
servlet container does. Tomcat 5 does so...)

You find Lomboz at:

Nice tutorial on Lomboz is here (nothing on debugging though):

You can find documentation on debugging JSPs with Lomboz here:
