Hi,

Is it a good idea to use XSLT to transform the application content to plain html for UI display to avoid the possible messy JSP code? Is performance (xsl compilation time) going to be a problem? Thanks!

Yes, it is almost always a good idea. And yes, performance may be a problem, but it's rarely such a big problem as it is sometimes presented. See this thread for a discussion:
