This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
The author does mention that in his Top Ten. BTW, the author of the article is the author of ( http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/jserverpages ) the first O'Reilly book on JSPs, which I recommend. After (professionally) working for 10 months in Servlets and JSPs, I learned a couple of new things with this book which just came out.

BTW, on your ( and "Model 2's") statement that JSP should not include any Java code, I agree. Except that it may not be necessary to follow it 100% if the people involved in the project are all Java programmers. It's when you have a clear separation of duties between "HTML authors" and Java developers where the separation should be as clear as possible. "To each his own", as the author explains in the abovementioned book.
