1. Do you  have all the updates installed on your ISA Server? http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/forefront/edgesecurity/bb734854.aspx
2. Do you see any compression errors on the Event Logs of the ISA Server?
3. Use the monitoring tab of the ISA Server and export the logs here.

There are several options, why ISA may block these sites. What I have seen is mostly, that such sites have some programmatical issues, especially if only a few sites are affected.

In normal cases, ISA should show all kinds of pages (including java or php or whatever), by default.

Best method is ( as Raj-GT said) so enable a monitor definition, which logs the traffic from your test machine (faulting jsp) to the internet. If ISA is blocking something by a rule, you should see something there (includig the affected rule).

So my checklist would be (Secure NAT client assumed).
(Make sure, you can reset all changes !!!)

If this is a general problem:
- Right click your rule, which allows web traffic - properties
- Check "Content types" if there is something denied.
- Click on toolbox (right pane) - content types - Applications - tab "content types
--> you should find .jsp within the list.

If this is a problem with only a few sites:
- Right click your rule, which allows web traffic - configure HTTP
- Try to play around with:
---> tab General --> verify normalisation and block high bit characters
---> tab methods and tab extensions if there is something blocked
---> tab headers ist there is something non default

- Right click your rule, which allows web traffic - configure RPC protocol --> disable strict RPC

An issue maybe also HTTP compression (disable it)
