I'm curious as to how many programmers are using sql JSTL tags in their production JSP pages?
It would seem, given the heavy influence given the MVC pattern with J2EE development, that it was a bad decision to add this to the spec in the first place.
Just by the very nature of the functionality provided through this library simply breaks the Model/View paradigm. A tutorial I'm going through now says it should be used
for prototyping purposes only... in my experience to many "prototypes" make it into production applications. Hey, if it works, ship it!
