The current release of Forte (version 1.0) uses Sun JSWDK as its servlet/JSP
engine. So if you are developing JSP 1.0-compliant pages only, it will help.
Right now it does not handle web.xml in any way, and uses the old
.properties way. I would say it helps a lot in editing and checking syntax,
and maybe testing, but for the other steps you might need to use Tonmcat
running paralelly with the IDE.

Forte 1.1 (we should have a beta by JavaOne) will support Tomcat, servlet
2.2 and JSP 1.1 directly, including all the associated features such as
web.xml and tag library descriptors.
