bi is essentially correct :-)

You an create a jsp in any text editor: UltrEdit, TextPad and Notepad (even Word but I wouldn't recommend it as it's easy to make silly mistakes) or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) such as Eclipse, MyEclipse or NetBeans. The benefit of using an IDE is that it also allows you to create other J2EE components such as servlets, filters and javabeans when you are ready to do so and they also have a very useful feature called syntax checking where the IDE automatically checks your code to make sure you don't make silly mistakes such as forgetting semi-colons ";" or closing scriptlet brackets "%>"

I would also recommend Eclipse, more specifically the Web Tools Platform version http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/ (right hand side sayign "downloads").
