    I also enjoyed the paper by Jason Hunter. It gives an excellent historical
    perspective to the rise of the model view controller paradigm with Servlets
    and JSP. Thanks Jack.

      Interesting site. It includes a pointer to a paper by Jason
      Hunter on the weaknesses of JSP vs. "template engines" like
      the TeaServlet.

      Tea looks like an interesting language, as well. It gets points
      for defining a "foreach" construct, and for translating itself
      into a Java servlet. It loses points for making "&" the
      string-concatenation operator when Java uses "+". Personally,
      I think "&" would probably have been the better choice for
      Java -- but not by enough to live with the compatibility problems
      when I'm working with both languages.

      But mostly, I think it's worth keeping in mind that this is a
      "better JSP" solution. I suspect that the amount of "static"
      HTML we generate will be so small that JSP isn't really useful
      to us anyway. Simple servlets will probably do nicely. (If that
      perspective changes, and we are tempted to use JSP, then the
      Tea system will definitely merit a closer look.)
