JSP is a robust and growing technology. By combining JSP and CSS, you can create incredibly powerful and flexible applications very quickly. My clients love JSPs, and continue to implement more and more functionality. One huge upside is that they can balance their server load among any platforms they choose. If you want to run Windows servers as your front end, you can. Linux, FreeBSD, no problem. I have one major client front-ending a large back-end iSeries with a small dedicated web-serving iSeries. Any flavor and combination works with a good design. And if you're an MVC purist and you don't want to roll your own, you can use one of the many MVC frameworks such as Struts, JSF, Cocoon, Tapestry, Echo - the list goes on, and it's really up to you to decide which best fits your application. As far as I'm concerned, from a pure user interface standpoint, JSP Model II (however you choose to implement it) is the best platform, at least for a browser-based solution. Joe
