I would think that good software design would transcend locale and/or nationality.

Why do you think it would be different in India than anywhere else?

If they prefer scriptlets I (and many others) don't want them working on my projects at any time.

And as Indians are smart marketeers who almost certainly know that I think you'll find many companies using JSTL by now.

Scriptlets are very much legacy tech and should never be used unless there's no way around it, and there almost always is, unless maybe it's a legacy app that does a lot of stuff that would using JSTL become overly complicated, and even then it may well be preferred if you are working on a lot of JSPs and can turn it into an include shared between them.

subhadeep, please refrain from posting in all uppercase characters. It makes your text hard to read and is considered "shouting".

I have adjusted the subject line for you.
