I recently started playing around with JSP and Tomcat- I have both working great, and I've been using a simple text editor to write the JSP files until now.
That works fine, but I'm hoping to move onto a bigger project soon, so continuing to use the simple text editor will be a real exercise in tedium. I've tried opening the .jsp file in eclipse, but I'm unable to see compiler errors or the other eclipse magic such as autocomplete and automatic handling of imports, since I can't figure out how to set up a project for the webapp (I'm using eclipse EE indigo). I've tried googling for this, but everything I try leads me to the same deadend.
I don't really need (or even want to) startup tomcat from eclipse (unless I have to in order to work with the .jsp files), all I really want to do is edit the JSP files in a more efficient way than using a basic text editor.
So my question is, is there a good way to deal with editing of a jsp file or a webapp in general in eclipse, or any other IDE?
Thanks for your time and any help you can provide, as I'm pretty much fumbling in the dark here.
