This week's book giveaway is in the Programmer Certification forum. We're giving away four copies of OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-815 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
Currently we have a set where each page in the application is defined in a JSP (inner JSP), and there is a separate JSP (outer JSP) which includes the inner JSP to apply styles, menu, layout and a bunch of other stuff. The initial reason was that the outer JSPs are managed by the creatives using DreamWeaver, and the inner files are managed by developers.
It works fine, except that the one ne nature between the two files and the fact that there are a small set of styles for the outer pages, I would like to reverse the behaviour.
Specifically I am looking for something like SiteMesh where you can define a set of templates, and then define which template gets applied to a request. I'd prefer something light as I am not prepared to introduce Struts or Spring, and SiteMesh caches the entire output before sending, which is also unacceptable.
