Hi nadine-gibson,

You would need a server. Most people use Tomcat (http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html)

Then, you would need to learn JSP and configure your server correctly. There are instructions how to do that, but if it gets messy, you could always post here.

Regards,
Zyloch

To get a feel on how JSP works, the Tomcat installation comes with some examples you should check out.  The simple definition would be that is is simalar you PHP and/or JSP in that it is normal HTML on the client side with Java scriptlets which run on the server side.  This is a simple page that prompts for you name and then says hi.

<html>
  <head>
     <title>jsp Demo</title>
   </head>

<body>
<form action='' method='post'>
  <%if (request.getMethod().equalsIgnoreCase("POST")) {%>
         <h1>Hello, <%=request.getParameter("name")%></h1>
  <%} else {%>
        <input type='text' name='name'/> <br/>
        <input type='submit' name='submit' value='submit'/>
   <%}%>
</form>
</body>
</html>

You must have servlet container such as Tomcat like Zyloch provide link above.
Then  install it, and try to start server and run its example.
If everything ok, try to create you first JSP by

HelloWorld.jsp
=========
<%
String name = request.getParameter("name");
%>
Hello World, <%=name%>.

and put it to C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\ROOT

then access them by opening browser and type this in address bar

http://localhost:8080/HelloWorld.jsp?name=My Name


Free e-book

To use JSP you need to know java and HTML. You can use JSP like ASP or PHP. But JSP is purely a mixture of java and HTML.
You can build dynamic pages with JSP and support them with servlets which are pure Java code. Actually JSP is turned into servlets before execution but you dont see them unless you want to trace an error within the code.
