We cannot compare DOM with JSP/Servlets, in a sense �ASP vs. JSP�. They are not competing technologies; each has its own niche. DOM (Document Object Model) is a language-independent interface for web documents (XML in particular). It defines how an XML document can be read and modified.
For this proposal DOM and JSP/Servlets can be used complimentary. These links can give you more information:

There is a free chapter from Java Examples in a Nutshell,
Chapter 19: XML regarding DOM and SAX issues.
