There are many tag libraries that you can use in your JSPs. Struts, JSTL, Oracle, Weblogic so on and so forth. My question is, which one do you prefer or recommend? What are the pros and cons of using one particular tag library? Somehow I find JSTL very limited. Other tag libraries like Oracle allows you to instantiate an entity bean in your JSP while JSTL doesn't.
Thanks in advance.

I've used both Struts and JSTL, and found both quite useful.
You should be aware that JSTL demands jsp 1.2 while Struts works well on 1.1 (Please correct me if I'm wrong).
Also my experience is that what you can do in Struts you can do easier with JSTL, and I also think that JSTL expression language is a better approach than the "attributes" approach of Struts..
