Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: use JSP's or servlets to generate HTML for View of MVC?

  1. Been kicking this around the office.

    Should we use JSP's for the View or just use servlets to generate the HTML?

    looking for some "best practices" and recommendations here..

    The use of servlets to generate HTML is outdated. JSPs are SOOOOO much easier to maintain. Don't waste your time discussing this one!
  3. Unless this is very small, consider using a web framework like Struts, Webwork, Maverick, Tapestry, etc..... Those guys will take care of your MVC for you. If this is small than use JSTL and hack it or PHP or dotNet.
