Peter Yared was formerly CTO for Sun's Application Server groups.
He has rejected JSP/J2EE and is now advocating solutions such as PHP.

Pretty damning, given Peter's background:

" The Java APIís grow into a morass of inconsistent and incomprehensible APIís, 
even the most simple things proved to be very complicated. The vast majority 
of J2EE deployments (over 80% according to Gartner) are simply Servlet/JSP 
to JDBC applications. Basically HTML front-ends to relational databases. It 
is ironic that much of what makes Java complicated today is all of its 
numerous band-aid extensions, such as generics and JSP templates, which were 
added to make these types of simple applications easier to develop. "
