I have an entire production webapp full of velocity webpages. Unfortunately, it's proprietary code, so I can't share it.

Actually, I'm converting it to JSF. Velocity is OK for display-only stuff (but not as good as I'd thought it would be), However, web pages typically have lots of inputs as well, and Velocity is no help there. Frameworks such as Struts and JSF work better.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

The first hit I got when searching for "apache velocity tools web example" was which seems exactly what you're looking for. Apparently you need the Velocity Tools in addition to the Velocity Engine.
I agree. Here's the link:
