Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
A frequent criticism that I hear about Java Server Pages (JSP) is that it doesn't strictly separate the presentation logic from the business logic, and there seems to be many solutions developed that aim to force this strict MVC separation. As developers, why should we depend on technology to force adherence to the goals of MVC? It is certainly possible to develop JSP pages that adhere to principles of MVC. If model or controller logic creeps into a JSP page, it our own fault. [Niel Eyde on JSP and MVC]
[thanks to] Dave Johnson and Roller contributors: Matt Raible, Lance Lavandowska. I must admit Roller v. 0.9.6.x seriously kicks ass. It's awesome. Great work. I had been tempted to install Roller on my webserver, but finally decided that the simpler application would be more appropriate.
