Sending An Email Using JSP Code With Netbeans IDE

In this article I am going to describe how to send an e-mail in JSP using the NetBeans IDE(7.0). This article is divided into several Steps. 

Step 1 : Downloading and Registering Libraries in NetBeans IDE 7.0.

First of all, you need to download the latest version of Java Mail , as well as DJ Native Swing. After you download the libraries, you need to put them into the NetBeans Library Manager. I recommend you store all libraries in, for example, C:\Program Files\Java\libraries.
