Here is how I would like to see a templating engine work with JSP or Velocity or whatever. Maybe someone can tell me if one exists or not.
Say I have a servlet that get's a bunch of crap from a database. And then with the information I do something like the following:
Template t = new Template();
t.setParameter("name", "Gregg");
And then on the JSP (or whatever) page I have:
<TD>Name: {$name}</TD>
Now, I realize we can do this with JavaBeans and the useBean tag library, but notice the difference in the code. Personally, I think this approach looks a lot cleaner than the taglib approach.
Anyone know of anything like this?
