By now almost everyone using servlets has heard about JavaServer Pages (JSP), a Sun-invented technology built on top of servlets. The official Application Programming Model document published by Sun has gone so far as to say, JSP technology should be viewed as the norm while the use of servlets will most likely be the exception. This article evaluates whether that claim is valid by comparing JSP to another technology built on servlets: template engines.

(Section 1.9, December 15, 1999, Draft Release) This paper evaluates whether that claim is valid by comparing JSP to another technology built on servlets: template engines."
