Hi all,
I was browsing last night and come accross this http://www.servlets.com/soapbox/problems-jsp.html
As I dont have practical experience, and very little theoretical, Id like to get your comments pse, all part of my learning process
I must say though that I find it pretty refreshing that a writer of a book on JSP wants to make his readers aware that there are alternatives to JSP.

I have read it before. I agree but everything takes time to evolve into something good.

But isn't that document quite outdated?

It's still a good document, and still very worth reading. Make sure you also read the "followup" page. I have felt for along time that templat eengines don't get nearly enough coverage in the server-side Java marketplace. WebMacro, its clone/competitor Apache Velocity, FreeMarker and so on are very powerful and usable. I have produced many successful projects using WebMacro, and before that my own template framweork, but relatively few using JSP.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
