    The IPPS SDK does not include an IDE, compiler or similar tools - the main contents are sample apps and code that you can use/modify in your IDE of choice.  Since IPPS is based on a very basic XML/HTTP web paradigm, virtually any modern web scripting language or dev environment is suitable.  JSP and ASP based samples are provided as a convenience, you can develop to IPPS with virtually any language or on any web server platform.
    You will need a physical Cisco phone (or IP Communicator softphone) to work with IPPS - there is no simulator available.
    For a very good introduction to the concepts, basics and enhanced use of IPPS, you may want to get this book:  It was published in 2002, and so does not cover a lot of recent additions to the IPPS API, but the basic concept and techniques described are still valid.
