Could we discuss some guidelines to determine when we should use JSP solution vs. XML/HTML solution from a performance point of view.Also can we elaborate on the possible pitfalls?
In the first place, I assume the above technologies are not alternate technologies and has to co-exist with each other.
Thanks in advance,

An article related to this is "Savor success with Java on the front end" by Alex Kalinovsky at .
In this article, Alex points out two performance issues plaguing XML applications today -- lack of tools for code generation (especially for stylesheets) and processing (parsing) speed. He ends the article with a section on "basic rules of thumb" for when to use HTML/JSP versus Java Swing versus XML/XSLT. I think the WebCream product he mentions is interesting -- it converts Java (AWT or Swing) into HTML dynamically.
I agree. Here's the link:
