I am currently in the process of design the architecture for a web based product. I have 2 choices in my mind now.
1) "Jsp" + "Java components"
2) "XSLT" + "Java components producing XML" + "a small servlet combining XSLT and XML"
I am kind of prefer solution 2, because it is natually a perfect MVC, allows parallel work and easier development management on XLST and XML separately, and XML data can later be easily feed into non-browser client(though, currently at the early stage of the project, it is only planned for browser type client).
I would extremely appreciate the experts' opinion on the above design issue, especially people have been in similar situation.

Have you looked into the Struts framework? It's more towards number 1, but it's very easy to work with and already provides Locale support, validation, database connections, etc...

I know struts is a good product, but haven't worked on it. Does struts supports XML(like WML and wireless data)?
