Which file on a web host do you upload a .jsp file into?

Hi all,
I am a bit frustrated regarding which folder to upload a ".jsp" file that works on my standalone PC. I look at the file manager on my web host and don't see where I can put the .jsp file. I put the HTML page up that contains a sample input form in a directory called "www" on the host. I open it up fine through IE but when I hit submit it fails. I don't even need to go this far. I just want to see a test .jsp page first. I have been told that I can run JSP on the host by their support people unless I totally misunderstood but they don't make it very clear. The host is www.HostReflex.com. Though they don't mention JSP on their main page I have mentioned to their support staff and they told me I can do it. Should there be an "obvious" folder to upload .jsp files into? Thanks in advance.

If your host truly supports JSP and they've got it set up correctly, you should be able to serve a JSP page out of any folder that an HTML page can be served out of. I'd suspect that your host doesn't really have a servlet/JSP container set up.

That is my concern as well. I am verifying. Thanks.
