What do you write instead?



Currently, I use the Vaadin framework and write most of my GUI in pure Java.

1. I always hear the testability argument against scriptlets. Now how is the above any more testable than calling the method in a scriptlet? It's even more error prone since somGeneralMethod may not even exist.
2. When you're using tags for control flow, you're essentially writing code in your jsp. Only in a syntax that really wasn't designed for it.
3. I'm not advocating to write business logic in scriptlets (or in the view at all), just presentation logic.

How is that neater than ${bean.value}?



At least in Eclipse: you get the benefits of compile-time checking, code completion, reference searching, auto refactoring and syntax coloring.
