I am seeing the exact opposite.  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.
