Is it only me? I like Java a lot, and how come I can't construct the page 
parts in Java as well? Is it that people really love to learn 15 different 
programming languages when one can do more than enough?

Tapestry, IMHO, have got a lot of things right. Let the programmers use Java 
and let the designers use Dreamweaver (or whatever their personal choice is).
Having the programmers crank out some <tr> statements isn't that much of a 
deal, but blurring the pitcure of who is in charge of the template is. The 
designer knows shit-all about any programming construct and the programmer 
knows shit-all about design (pardon my french).

Maybe this community is a lot about people who think that they are in the 
middle and can do both... no offense :o) , most real-world projects are not 
organized in that manner.
