I plan to build a web application with a CentralEntryServlet. This
Servlet invokes some actions which depends on the given PathInfo. The
actions are very extensive and return a ready OutputStream which then is
printed out to the Client. 

I want to use templates which are connected to different actions. The
actions aren't provided with the web application. They depend on the
needs of a customer. You can think of these actions were like a list of
modules which collects/prepare some data and the templates to show these

One possibility would be to point the Client to a JSP page after
processing the actions and then let Tomcat do the rest. But I don't like
this possibility.

 The templates should be thin with no java source inside. I want to
reduce and to simplify the template development drastically so I don't
want the Web designers to use JSP tags inside these templates. Instead
the templates have only a few more TAGs additionaly to HTML. These tags
are converted to Java source by the template compiler of my application
so that the compiled templated is a JSP. Now I want this JSP be
processed to get the HTML output which I can then print out to the

Cu, Gunnar

Hi, Gunnar.  I think that this is what JSP itself does already, i.e.
HTML content.  So, I am not sure what you are asking.  If you don't want
use JSP pages, then don't.  I am sure that is not what you wanted to
so, again, I misunderstood what you are saying.  Could you  be more 
specific about what you want?  You don' t have to use JSP pages with 
Tomcat, but then there would be no point in having Tomcat really.
