As JSPs are converted in servlets so why we need to go for Jsp rather than using servlets..

Hi mono,

All the web designer no need to know java.servlet & jsp are components of web application .

jsp is view purpose(contain maximum of html).servlet is a good controller(contain maximum of java code)..

take an example,
jsp is a batsman,servlet is a bowler..but both are cricket player to win a match

thanks & regards,
