I am looking for articles, blogs, web pages, books etc. that cover scripletless jsp development.

Specifically, I would like to find an argument FOR scriptletless development that I can include in a requirements document. The readers of the document may not know anything about scriptletless techniques and I need to both convince and educate them. I would like to include references to sources of more and/or in-depth info on the topic.

Thanks for any info,

I wrote a bunch of articles for the JavaRanch Journal on how to do things in scriptless pages, but none of them really try to convince you that that's the best way to go. This one probably comes the closest, but I don't think that's what you are looking for.

Testability, maintainability, extensibility, Separation of Concerns and so on are all the reasons that scriptless pages are preferred -- I'm sure someone has written justification artivcles -- I just don't know of any off the top of my head.

Bear,

Thanks for the response. Your article is not exactly what I was looking for but I'm going to include a reference to it in the appendix of my requirements document. I think you did a nice job of explaining the change of perspective that is necessary when using EL.

Thanks again,
