IndexHTML has this in its source code:

if (file.getPath().endsWith(".html") || // index .html files
	       file.getPath().endsWith(".htm") || // index .htm files

This is why .jsp files are excluded.

Keep in mind that JSP files are not pure HTML (not even close in most 
cases, especially when using JSF).  I'm not sure what the built-in HTML 
parser will do with .jsp files.  Generally content shouldn't be in the 
view layer, so indexing .jsp pages may or may not be useful.  May I 
suggest switching to a Java web development framework that uses pure 
HTML templates?  Tapestry - :)
