Depends what you want to measure - HelloWorld shows one number, the 
container overhead. For any servlet that does something more you'll get
the container overhead + the servlet overhead.

What would be interesting is a number of simple servlets doing simple 
tasks - like get a parameter, send a big chunk of data using
OutputStream, then Writer, then set headers, etc: and you substract the
first number and you can reveal more information. 

An arbitrary page can't tell too much, because it'll be hard to
separate the components. Of course, if you want to know how your
application will
perform you need to measure your application :-)

Yes, I would be very interested in the results with a simple JSP.
In some of my tests they were slightly faster than a similar servlet 
( for 3.3 ).

Also, as a note - 3.3 is just M1 - there are still few things that will
affect the performance.
