Could anybody advise me how to convert a servlet file to a JSP file? For example: I have a pretty big servlet file listed below which handles "session tracking", I don't know where to start for conversion. I would appreciate your help.

import java.io.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.text.NumberFormat;
/** Shows all items currently in ShoppingCart. Clients
* have their own session that keeps track of which
* ShoppingCart is theirs. If this is their first visit
* to the order page, a new shopping cart is created.
* Usually, people come to this page by way of a page
* showing catalog entries, so this page adds an additional
* item to the shopping cart. But users can also
* bookmark this page, access it from their history list,
* or be sent back to it by clicking on the "Update Order"
* button after changing the number of items ordered.
* <P>

Thanks a lot, James, for responding to my post. I am going to give a try. Lots of appreciation.
 
That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
