 JSP Specification : An API defined by Sun, which every JSP would
   have to it's disposal while performing it's functions. It doesn't
   matter what goes behind the API, it's just that any JSP conforming
   to this specification would get to use these set of
   interfaces,abstract classes etc.
 JSP Implementation: Any software which provides the above interfaces
   to a JSP. Let me repeat again, there is no specification how all
   these is going to be implemented - you have a free line out there,
   only your final product should provided the above interfaces to a
   conforming JSP.
 JSP container: There is no JSP webserver. Only a JSP/Servlet
   container - an environment provided to JSPs and Servlets for
   executing. An implementation could integrate JSP/Servlet container
   with a Web Server (e.g. NAS), or it could just provide the
   container and provide adapters to popular web-servers allowing the
   web-server to server static content as they normally do. Only when
   any JSP/Servlet request is supplied, they pass on the request to
   the container.

Again, there are NO specs for implementation. It is totally upto you. Your
final product should provide the interfaces defined by Sun. That's all.
