    I know HTML, and I know Java. I've just never actually combined the 2 for JSP. I need to do a little JSP stuff for work and need to practice. How do I go about using JSP on OSX? I already have Apache, PHP and MySQL.

    Thanks

    Two words: Apache Tomcat

    If you need to integrate into Apache HTTP Server, you will need a connector such as mod_jk

    Or go download the Netbeans bundle (under J2EE downloads) from java.sun.com. That's what I use - it's at least a container and a webserver (not sure if it's a full J2EE-compliant application server i.e. EJBs might not work). Netbeans includes Tomcat and I've been writing and deploying JSPs and running them locally.

    It is highly recommended that you start by learning servlets first then moving on
    to JSP. And as other people mentioned, to use either servlets or JSP you will
    need a webcontainer (e.g Tomcat).

    Use Tomcat, unless you want to make the leap to full-blow J2EE, then grab JBoss, which ironically uses Tomcat as its servlet container. Mod_jk works well with apache, and can make either JBoss or Tomcat work pretty seemlessly with static web content.
