Hello All :
I�m building a JSP-Java Beans-Servlet-JDBC application. The application requires User interface screens with controls like Grid, List Boxes, Tree View and Tabs. Can we have these controls in JSP screen ? If yes, which development tool provides these features.
Thanks

In general, these sort of things are not available directly from JSP. JSP assumes that the output is HTML (or maybe HTML + JavaScript), and HTML has a hard time doing these sort of UI widgets.
You might be better thinking of a Applet-Servlet-Java Data Model-JDBC application or an Application-RMI-Java Data Model-JDBC application. Both of these will give you access to the rich UI tools available in Swing or AWT.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
