Well, that is a different thing, though. iPlanet has never been through 
the JCP or any other kind of standardization/peer review track. It was 
not perceived as a technology, upon which to standardize every software, 
but as a software application itself, competing with many others. JSP is 
a (more or less) accepted and standardized technology and there are 
several, competing implementations to choose from.

I wish you good luck!

Any of them by Sams Publishing? They promised me a free copy, because I 
helped out reviewing proposals about 1.5 years ago :)
