The VisualAge toolset by IBM is being superseded by the WebSphere Studio one. The latest application development tool from IBM is WebSphere Studio Application Developer (WSAD) 4.0. (WSAD 5.0 should be coming out soon).
WSAD 4.0 supports J2EE 1.2 (i.e. JSP 1.1 and Servlets 2.2); if you want to use a J2EE 1.3 server now, you may want to check out the WebSphere Technology for Developers (WTD).
WSAD comes with a Developer's Edition of WAS, so you can develop your servlets/JSP from within WSAD and test them from within the tool (actually WAS Single-Server Edition is running behind the scenes).
Hope this helps,
Panagiotis.

Maybe you were talking about WTE (websphere test environment) in VAJ.
It does not support servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2.
Get Tomcat 4.X. It is much easier to use anyway.
