I know about MyEclipse, but not a big fan, since it is not very good with JSPs. It underlines errors in red, but does not tell what the error is.

I am planning to purchase one, and looking for suggestions.
Thank you.

Why dont you try bea workshop and netbeans 5.0 ;) both are great IDE's.

Commented:
For bea(eclipse based) here are the list of features the JSP editor is for free other than that you have to pay if you want to use struts editor and so-on :

Commented:
For netbeans its bundled all-in-one but does'nt support jsp well that is if you need a real editor for it, in that case I suggest you to use SunStudioCreator for free :

Now if you have a lot of money har-har to spend you may opt in using RAD from IBM :

Commented:
I've tried the 3 tools since I use WSAD/RAD on the company that I am working with if I have all the money I will just use RAD. If I dont have enough money
I will use bea's free JSP editor very nice but all in all I pick "SunStudioCreator" for free.
