Subject RE: Ejb vs jsp
Date Mon, 06 May 2002 19:44:53 GMT
We use JSP with our Java-based content management and collaboration engine,
which is RMI based, not EJB based.  The design of the java beans in our
persistent and manager layer could all be modified to run inside of an EJB
container, however, then there is the added expense of an Application
Server, that may not be necessary.  EJB for the most part, works well when
extending or bringing to the web a legacy system, or something of that
nature.  Or, if there is no overall framework in place for a large scale
development, then having an EJB container would provide many of the common
framework essentials that would otherwise need to be invented.  That way,
developers can focus on the essential building blocks rather than the
internal framework components.

JSP is only for the presentation layer -- we use it to dynamically create
the pages, based on a number of factors.

I use them both.  EJB are used to model information that is based on a
db or other storage services.  I use the JSP as a view to dynamically
create HTML.
