Hi zb,
XSP does stand for eXtensible Server Pages. It is a part of the Apache Software Foundation's Cocoon project. It's all based on the idea of separating the business from the logic. I haven't used it much so I can't really comment on it. From what I've seen, with XSP, its still easy to add code your your pages. I'd perfer using taglibs, but that's just me.
Take a look at this article from onjava
Here is the cocoon project.
Hope this helps,
/rick

I read the article and I came away with the thought that XSP is a natural progression of JSP.
I'm not sure I understand the argument of greater separation of content and presentation using XSP. If there is business logic in your JSP/XSP your going to have portability problems.
You can source XML from a servlet/EJB to a divergent platform and keep the business logic out of the hands of the presentation developer.
Just puzzled about the spin of the article.

Anyone out there using this?

Michael,
I totally agree with you!! I didn't like the article or the ideas presented in it. I don't agree with so much code mixed in with the presentation.
I haven't tried it because of this, but I'd like to hear what others have to say.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
