Scriptlets, JSP tags for JavaBeans, anything else obsolete?  RSS feed

I've read through most of Murach Java Servlets and JSP and Head First Servlets and JSP.

There were some notable points in both books:
1) Scriptlets should not be used (except for maybe testing)
2) JSP tags aren't really used with JavaBeans anymore.

So I just wondered... these books were written in 2008. Are there any other aspects of Servlets and JSP which I should ignore?

It's less that you should ignore them than be sure not to use them in new development.

Knowledge of the obsolete parts of JSP may still be needed to deal with legacy apps.

Oh okay, so I guess I need to go over those sections again.
