I'm just wondering if anyone has ever played with Velocity, or actually uses it in their "real job"?

I think it's pretty darn cool technology. Excellent compromise for HTML-monkeys that know how to script, but get confused by JSP scriplets (and who wouldn't with some of the 'code-in-page' designs).

It's also very 'clean' looking.

Any thoughts?

I haven't used velocity, but I have used its very close cousin WebMacro. velocity was originally a splinter project of WebMacro, and they still have more similarities than differences.
I have several projects which use or have used WebMacro (and page templating in general). I find WebMacro (and Velocity) work better with XSLT styling than JSP does.

We use Velocity templates in a few parts of our online app (in production now for over 6 months) and have found it work quite well. We have templates for system generated e-mail, and for formatting data the user downloads from our site.
Use it!
