Submission + - Pure servlets: Designing Web UIs for Simplicity

An anonymous reader writes: JSP was designed to keep Web developers' tasks separate from those of the nondevelopers who design dynamic webpage UIs. Unfortunately, JSP is a bit too complicated for many designers. This article demonstrates the advantages of an unorthodox alternative: using simple helper objects to build a Web interface based on servlets alone. This is an invitation to think outside the framework, if you will, and imagine a Web interface built directly on the Java Servlet API.
