1. Depends on your web/app-server
2. it's up to you... some choices, I personally use the free apache/tomcat combo. (web/app server respectively)
3. Java development kit. The classes you'll need to develop in java (the API).
4. JSP is simply another way of creating a Servlet. JSP pages are compiled into servlets.
5. Put this in a .jsp file:
      PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
      out.writeLine("Hello World");
6. I'd assume you could in frontpage XP though i've never used it. I like JCreator Pro (www.jcreator.com)... though there are many others like NetBeans, IDEA, etc...
1.you can set security in jsp by config in web.xml. you can protect web resource collection by defining security role and define which resource they can use. and if you want to protect http connection you can use SSL also.
2.There are many web server support JSP. for free I recommend Tomcat like bobbit31. for commercial e.g. WebLogic, WebSphere.
3.JDK stand for Java Development Kit. It is a java library classes that you can use to develop and it also bundle Java Runtime.
4.JSP emphasizes on presentation and come after Servlet. Servlet is not suitable for developing presentation I will show you by snippet code.


but if you use jsp. it's easier and you can use any html editor to do


5. for simple helloworld.jsp. it's just one line.

<%="Hello World!"%>

6. I am not reccomend frontpage since it microsoft and suite for ASP. for jsp I think you can use any java editor that can highlight java syntax for you e.g. eclipse(www.eclipse.org it's for free)
