Looking in the Eclipse 3.3 update site for WTP Updates, I see 4 options
that seem relevant to me: WST, WST JDK, JST, JST JDK. What's the
difference between them?

Looking at http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/ under the Subprojects menu on
the left, I assume Java EE Tools corresponds to JST (or JST JDK)? It's
still not completely clear what views/perspectives it adds, and what
specific features (even after looking at
http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/jst/components/j2ee/api/j2ee _componentoverview.html).
And I'm not sure which Subprojects corresponds to WST and WST JDK.

For someone looking to do basic web development - i.e. servlets, JSPs,
tags, etc. No EJBs or anything, but perhaps the ability to deploy to
servers. At minimum, which of the 4 projects above would be necessary to
obtain?

Thanks.

Just download the Eclipse for Java EE developers. That will get you
what you need. It includes the WST and JST already pre-packaged for
you. You need both WST and JST to do what you want.

So what's the difference between "xST" and "xST JDK"?

You only need the SDK items if you are writing plugins that extend the
WTP functionality.
