Hi Angela,
You can use JSP without servlets.By design, JSP sits on the top of the servlets.Also, when you execute a JSP, a servlet is created for that JSP Page and it follows the same life cycle as the servlet, i.e.,init(), service() and destroy() methods.
If you are very curious , you may look at the Servlet code, that would be generated in the same directory, where you have your JSP.
Hope this helps
Regards,

Hi Angela,
If you are new to JSP, I suggest you Download class files for JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.3 found at http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/download.html .This is just Sun's reference implementation web server.Go through the docs t understand how you have to run the webserver.
Once you are comfortable with it, you may try hosting JSP on some good web servers like Tomcat(also found on the above page).Then you may proceed hosting it on an robust Application Server (like IBM Websphere, Oracle 9iAS,BEA Weblogic,etc).
Hope that helps,
Regards,

Hi Anjela,
After downloading the JSWDK Reference Implementation, you would need to run the WebServer, (normally a DOS batch file called servletrunner.bat, I has used it long time back!!!)
Once you have the webservice running, you could invoke the JSP using a HTTP URL, like http://<name_of_your_machine>:<port_no>/servlets/servlet.
Please refer to the documentation for more information.It is very well-written.Most likely you would not have any problems with it.
As regards editor for JSP, you may start off with a simple TEXTPAD editor.Once you are comfortable with it, you may consider using popular Java IDE's (Integrated Development Environment) like IBM Visual Age for Java, Borland JBuilder, Oracle JDeveloper,etc. to develop your JSP's and other Java code.
Let me know, if you still face any problems
Regards,
