Hi indyng,

JSP is just a subset of Java, as the above link says. There's bound to be some differences here and there, but it's kind of like ASP and VB. Java's the main boss, and JSP is just your average worker.

Java is a development environment which is designed to run in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Straight Java applications are typically either console applications (no visual interface) or desktop applications. JSP is a subset of Java (as Zyloch pointed out), which means that it uses Java code. The main difference is that JSP is designed to output html pages to a browser, so therefore is designed to be a web server language. So if you are developing console applications or desktop applications, you would use Java. If you are developing web applications, you would use JSP. JSP is similar in concept to ColdFusion and ASP.Net since all are intended for web development with HTML output.

Hope this clears it up.
