See http://peteryared.blogspot.com/2003/09/next-language.html. 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.
