I did not eliminate it. I mainly want to know if the are other XML
friendly templating languages out there.
I have XSL that writes out to JSP too. If I write the source XML
generically enough, I can generate a different versions of the webapp in
JSP and Velocity (or whatever). I have used both Tomcat and Resin, both
are buggy with the XML syntax, though using the Expression Language is
fine. Since using the XML syntax is buggy you have to write XSL that
uses xsl:text/@disable-output-escaping='yes' which kind of sucks.
I write the source XML that contains the JSP code in the XML syntax and
transform out to the old syntax. The benefit here is during authoring
time I can remove/replace the code so the user sees a clean page which
is not running as a JSP in a 'preview'.
Another thing with JSP is you can access all of java pretty easily. I
think Velocity offers a cleaner separation of concerns.
