Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
I would like to get into developing Java Server Pages. I have been working with Java applications for over ten years now but I have never done anything with JSP. Can somebody tell me what would be the best way for me to cut my teeth on this technology? If possible, I would like to set everything up on a single PC running Windows XP. Do I need to download and install something like the Apache Tomcat or Oracle’s JSP Translator, on my PC? Do recent versions of JDK provide the classes needed for developing JSPs or do I need to download a different type of development Kit? A good reference book for beginners would also be very helpful.
I have been doing some research on this topic but I feel like the most basic components and concepts needed for developing JSPs are still a mystery.
