Karthik -

You don't need to be an expert. Just properly phrase your questions
prior to asking. Judging from the way the question was asked it would
probably be to you benefit to read the website that Jeff mentioned.

Basically yes, this is not a smart question.

You aren't giving us any meaningful information about your scenario or
the problem you are trying to solve. Here's just a sampling of some of
the information that would have been helpful in your initial query:

Is the machine local or remote? One machine or many?
You're asking about JSPs...what appserver are you deploying to? Does
your appserver vendor provide this support? Where are the backups going
to be stored?

Obviously I can't speak for everyone on this list, but I don't have the
time or the patience to try and pry this information out of you. At this
point it appears to me that you want someone to completely design a
solution for you; there are people on this list who make their living
selling these kinds of consulting services - why should they help you
design a solution for free when you could be hiring them instead?

Describe your goal, describe your problem & describe what you have done
so far to solve that problem & describe where you're stuck; that's how
to ask a smart question on this list.
