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.
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. ------------------ In Gates we trust. Yeah right....
"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."
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.
