P.S. I'll save my "scriplets are so yesterday" speech for another time.
I'd like to hear it. Mixing java with html has made me uneasy from the start. This is a discussion forum. Don't be afraid to discuss. Maybe a few alcoholic beverages will loosen those lips. [ October 11, 2006: Message edited by: sven studde ]
One thing to note, that throws a wrench into everything, is that at deployment time, there really isn't any difference between Servlets, JSPs and for that matter, Java.
JSPs are simply designed and developed differently from Servlets. However, when JSPs run on the server, the server turns the JSP into a Servlet, and runs the JSP with all of the semantics associated with Servlets running in the web container. You can actually instruct a J2EE application server to save the code that is generated when a JSP is converted into a Servlet at runtime.
With WebSphere, (I'm not sure about the other implementations), it is actually a Servlet running on the server that turns JSP files into Servlets. I alway refer to it as the "BorgServlet", although the name IBM uses is much less creative.
