Calling Java APIs from JSP

I have available to me multiple Java APIs that I will be using to load and extract data from a XML file.  I need to access these Java APIs from a JSP page.  What is the best way, from a JSP page, to access Java APIs?

(The XML data is used to build a menu tree.  I am using Eclipse, and the myEclipse plugin.)  
 
As an aside, I'm not really asking for a lot of details and examples, (even though that would be VERY nice.)  I've read a lot (beans vs EJB vs embedded code, etc) and can't really pick out the best tools and approach.  If you can recommend an approach, I think it will save me from, say, implementing an approach only to find hours later some serious drawbacks!

why not simply use page import:

<%@ page import="com.package.blah1,
             com.package.blah2"
%>

most of the java API can used on JSP pages by using page import directive in jsp. there is no restriction on it. Howerver if you want to use some other APIs. like type four 4 drivers of any other APIs then you have to add the jar files of these in the classpath of your jsp/servlet engine. or in the classpath of the application server which you are using. Once they are in the classpath of your server you can use them by using page import directive in your jsp.

Other method is to directly reference the class without importing it like

Java.Util.Vector vect = new Java.Util.Vector()
java.sql.Connection con;

in any case your claasses should be in your server classpath
